       mktemp - create a temporary file or directory

       mktemp [OPTION]... [TEMPLATE]

       Create a temporary file or directory, safely, and print its name.  TEM‐
       PLATE must contain at least 3 consecutive `X's in last  component.   If
       TEMPLATE is not specified, use tmp.XXXXXXXXXX, and --tmpdir is implied.

       -d, --directory
	      create a directory, not a file

       -u, --dry-run
	      do not create anything; merely print a name (unsafe)

       -q, --quiet
	      suppress diagnostics about file/dir-creation failure

	      append  SUFF  to	TEMPLATE.   SUFF must not contain slash.  This
	      option is implied if TEMPLATE does not end in X.

	      interpret TEMPLATE relative to DIR.  If DIR  is  not  specified,
	      use  $TMPDIR if set, else /tmp.  With this option, TEMPLATE must
	      not be an absolute name.	Unlike with -t, TEMPLATE  may  contain
	      slashes, but mktemp creates only the final component.

       -p DIR use DIR as a prefix; implies -t [deprecated]

       -t     interpret	 TEMPLATE as a single file name component, relative to
	      a directory: $TMPDIR, if set; else the directory	specified  via
	      -p; else /tmp [deprecated]

       --help display this help and exit

	      output version information and exit
