GetTempPathName.ksh is a Korn shell script that provides your shell program with a guaranteed unique temporary file name. Just call this script with the prefix you want for your temporary file, and this script will return an unique temporary name. Two optional parameters allows you to specify suffix for the temporary file and the directory to locate the temporary file.
After calling this script, the temporary file is created to prevent another process from using the same file name. Your application should delete the temporary file after using it.

I changes the order of the statements in the while loop to make a minor efficiency improvement. In addition, I improved the readability of the source code. The new version is attached below.
