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
