== Description The file-temp library is an alternate way to handle tempfile generation. == Requirements ffi 1.0.0 or later == Installation gem install file-temp == Synopsis require 'file/temp' fh = File::Temp.new fh.puts "hello" fh.close # => Tempfile automatically deleted fh = File::Temp.new(false) fh.puts "world" fh.close # => Tempfile still on your filesystem == Motivation Ruby's tempfile.rb is overwrought and susceptible to race conditions. This library uses your system's native tmpfile() or mkstemp() functions instead of trying to handle race conditions manually via pure Ruby. This library is also more secure because it restricts file permission via umask() for files created with mkstemp(). Finally, this library subclasses the File class. This means you get almost exactly the same interface as the File class. The only difference is the constructor. == JRuby The implementation for JRuby uses the Java API, not the C API. The temporary file name generated by Java is different than the C version, since it uses a GUID instead of the 'XXXXXX' template, but the interface is otherwise identical. There is one test failure with JRuby (threaded tempfile creation). I am not sure why, as sample code seems to work fine. Help wanted. == MS Windows You may need to use the mingw build in order to use this library. == License Artistic 2.0 == Copyright (C) 2007-2014 Daniel J.
