           use Test::More;
           use Test::TempDir::Tiny;

           # default tempdirs

           # run code in a temporary directory
           in_tempdir "label becomes name" => sub {

       This module works with Test::More to create temporary directories that stick around if
       tests fail.

       It is loosely based on Test::TempDir, but with less complexity, greater portability and
       zero non-core dependencies.  (Capture::Tiny is recommended for testing.)

       The "tempdir" and "in_tempdir" functions are exported by default.

       If the current directory is writable, the root for directories will be ./tmp.  Otherwise,
       a File::Temp directory will be created wherever temporary directories are stored for your

       Every *.t file gets its own subdirectory under the root based on the test filename, but
       with slashes and periods replaced with underscores.  For example, t/foo.t would get a
       test-file-specific subdirectory ./tmp/t_foo_t/.  Directories created by "tempdir" get put
       in that directory.  This makes it very easy to find files later if tests fail.

       The test-file-specific name is consistent from run-to-run.  If an old directory already
       exists, it will be removed.

       When the test file exits, if all tests passed, then the test-file-specific directory is
       recursively removed.

       If a test failed and the root directory is ./tmp, the test-file-specific directory sticks
       around for inspection.  (But if the root is a File::Temp directory, it is always

       If nothing is left in ./tmp (i.e. no other test file failed), then ./tmp is cleaned up as
       well (unless it's a symlink).

       This module attempts to avoid race conditions due to parallel testing.  In extreme cases,
       the test-file-specific subdirectory might be created as a regular File::Temp directory
       rather than in ./tmp.  In such a case, a warning will be issued.


           $dir = tempdir();          # .../default_1/
           $dir = tempdir("label");   # .../label_1/

       Creates a directory underneath a test-file-specific temporary directory and returns the
       absolute path to it in platform-native form (i.e. with backslashes on Windows).

       The function takes a single argument as a label for the directory or defaults to
       "default". An incremental counter value will be appended to allow a label to be used
       within a loop with distinct temporary directories:

           # t/foo.t

           for ( 1 .. 3 ) {
               tempdir("in loop");

           # creates:
           #   ./tmp/t_foo_t/in_loop_1
           #   ./tmp/t_foo_t/in_loop_2
           #   ./tmp/t_foo_t/in_loop_3

       If the label contains any characters besides alphanumerics, underscore and dash, they will
       be collapsed and replaced with a single underscore.

           $dir = tempdir("a space"); # .../a_space_1/
           $dir = tempdir("a!bang");  # .../a_bang_1/

       The test-file-specific directory and all directories within it will be cleaned up with an
       END block if the current test file passes tests.

           in_tempdir "label becomes name" => sub {
               my $cwd = shift;
               # this happens in tempdir

       Given a label and a code reference, creates a temporary directory based on the label
       (following the rules of "tempdir"), changes to that directory, runs the code, then changes
       back to the original directory.

       The temporary directory path is given as an argument to the code reference.

       When the code finishes (even if it dies), "in_tempdir" will change back to the original
       directory if it can, to the root if it can't, and will rethrow any fatal errors.


       When this environment variable is true, directories will not be cleaned up, even if tests
