GetTempDirPath.ksh (GPL)

GetTempDirPath.ksh is a Korn shell script that provides your shell program with a guaranteed unique temporary directory name. Just call this script with the prefix you want for your temporary directory, and this script will return an unique temporary directory name. Two optional parameters allows you to specify suffix for the temporary directory and the directory where to create your temporary directory.

After calling this script, the temporary directory is created to prevent another process from using the same name. Your application should delete the temporary directory after using it.

GetTempDirPath.ksh takes advantage of the GetTempPathName.ksh (GPL) Korn shell script, which is also available on this site. So to use this script, you will need to download the GetTempPathName.ksh script if you don't already have it.

GetTempDirPath.ksh is distributed as executable source code under the GNU General Public License. Please see the license agreement elsewhere on this site.


  GetTempDirPath.ksh "prefix" ["suffix"] ["directory"]


    # GetTempDirPath.ksh foo

# GetTempDirPath.ksh foo .txt

# GetTempDirPath.ksh foo .txt .
