It'd be good if File::Temp had a PREFIX option like $fh = File::Temp->new (PREFIX => 'myprog'); which would generate a file "/tmp/myprogXXXXXX". Emacs make-temp-file has this and it's a good way to work a program name or module name into the filename, as a hint at who's to blame for filling up /tmp. :-) I got the effect I wanted with a TEMPLATE, but that then needs TMPDIR turned on explicitly, and in any case I'd rather let File::Temp decide how many "XXXXXX"s are prudent etc. $fh = File::Temp->new (TEMPLATE => 'myprog-XXXXXX', TMPDIR => 1); -- Advertising jargon elucidated for the layman: "Gadget" - any product which by definition you'll buy then never use.
