NAME

       mktemp - create a temporary file or directory

SYNOPSIS

       mktemp [OPTION]... [TEMPLATE]

DESCRIPTION

       Create  a  temporary file or directory, safely, and print its name.  TEMPLATE must contain
       at least 3 consecutive 'X's  in  last  component.   If  TEMPLATE  is  not  specified,  use
       tmp.XXXXXXXXXX,  and  --tmpdir is implied.  Files are created u+rw, and directories u+rwx,
       minus umask restrictions.

       -d, --directory
              create a directory, not a file

       -u, --dry-run
              do not create anything; merely print a name (unsafe)

       -q, --quiet
              suppress diagnostics about file/dir-creation failure

       --suffix=SUFF
              append SUFF to TEMPLATE; SUFF must not contain a slash.  This option is implied  if
              TEMPLATE does not end in X

       -p DIR, --tmpdir[=DIR]
              interpret  TEMPLATE  relative  to DIR; if DIR is not specified, use $TMPDIR if set,
              else /tmp.  With this option, TEMPLATE must not be an absolute  name;  unlike  with
              -t, TEMPLATE may contain slashes, but mktemp creates only the final component

       -t     interpret  TEMPLATE  as  a  single  file  name  component, relative to a directory:
              $TMPDIR, if set; else the directory specified via -p; else /tmp [deprecated]

       --help display this help and exit

       --version
              output version information and exit
