NAME
       mkstemp - create	a temporary file

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/local/libexec/nmh/mkstemp [-directory directory] [-prefix prefix]
	    [-suffix suffix] [-version]	[-help]

DESCRIPTION
       mkstemp creates a temporary file	using mkstemp(3), or  if  the  -suffix
       switch  is available and	used, mkstemps(3).  The	file name identifies a
       unique, newly created file, and always contains 6 characters  that  ap-
       pear to be random.

       The  -directory	switch	specifies  a  directory	in which to create the
       file.

       The -prefix switch specifies an initial part, before the	6  characters,
       of the file name.

       The  -suffix switch is only supported on	platforms that provide the mk-
       stemps(3) library function.  It specifies a suffix to appear after  the
       6 characters; if	it should begin	with a special character such as a pe-
       riod, that must be explicit in suffix.

       Unlike arguments	to most	switches of other nmh commands,	the  arguments
       to mkstemp switches can begin with a dash.

EXIT STATUS
       If  mkstemp successfully	creates	the temporary file, it prints the file
       name on standard	output and exits with status 0.	 On failure, it	prints
       a diagnostic message on standard	error and exits	with status -1.
