NAME

       ns_mktemp, ns_tmpnam - commands

SYNOPSIS

       ns_mktemp template

       ns_tmpnam

_________________________________________________________________


DESCRIPTION

       ns_mktemp  returns a unique filename based on the template you specify.  ns_tmpnam returns
       a filename that can safely be used for a temporary file.

       The template for ns_mktemp should contain a string with six trailing  Xs,  which  will  be
       replaced  with  an  alpha-numeric  string  of  six  characters chosen to make the filename
       unique.  If template does not end with six trailing Xs the empty string will be returned.

       ns_tmpnam calls the tmpnam() C library function, and  the  results  will  depend  on  your
       operating  system.   On  Irix, for example, tmpnam() always generate a file name using the
       path-prefix defined as P_tmpdir in the header file which is "/var/tmp/".

EXAMPLES

        nscp> ns_tmpnam ;# On Linux
        /tmp/filevuLwaE

        nscp> ns_mktemp /tmp/foobar.XXXXXX
        /tmp/foobar.p6SlaC
