Help with loop in a shell script

I just want to write a little script, that reads the lines from a file, echos somthing in a new tmp.file and then do some commands whith the tmp.files.

while read -r line
echo "TEST=" > tmp.$$
echo "$line" >> tmp.$$
any_command < tmp.$$

But I think I have to use somthing different than tmp.$$.
Any ideas?
