File::Temp can be used to create and open temporary files in a safe way. There
is both a function interface and an object-oriented interface. The File::Temp
constructor or the tempfile() function can be used to return the name and the
open filehandle of a temporary file. The tempdir() function can be used to
create a temporary directory.
The security aspect of temporary file creation is emphasized such that a
filehandle and filename are returned together. This helps guarantee that a
race condition can not occur where the temporary file is created by another
process between checking for the existence of the file and its opening.
Additional security levels are provided to check, for example, that the sticky
bit is set on world writable directories.
The modules in this package are already available as part of perl-modules, but
is provided for people that need a newer version of File::Temp.
