RFC 27 states

The path to the temporary file with the proposed content will be available
by using Ruby's sprinf formatting:


And the documentation show an example

template "/etc/nginx.conf" do
  verify "nginx -t -c %{path}"

But the code gives file instead of path

def verify_command(path, opts)
    command = @command % {:file => path}
    interpreter = Chef::GuardInterpreter.for_resource(@parent_resource, command, @command_opts)

Thanks @Tech356. Let's add :path and keep :file to avoid breaking anyone else who managed to figure out the right option. Sorry about this.
