tmpfile - create a temporary file


   #include <stdio.h>

   FILE *tmpfile(void);


   The  tmpfile()  function  opens  a  unique  temporary  file  in  binary
   read/write (w+b) mode.  The file will be automatically deleted when  it
   is closed or the program terminates.


   The tmpfile() function returns a stream descriptor, or NULL if a unique
   filename cannot be generated or the unique file cannot be  opened.   In
   the latter case, errno is set to indicate the error.


   EACCES Search permission denied for directory in file's path prefix.

   EEXIST Unable to generate a unique filename.

   EINTR  The call was interrupted by a signal; see signal(7).

   EMFILE The per-process limit on the number of open file descriptors has
          been reached.

   ENFILE The system-wide limit on the total number of open files has been

   ENOSPC There was no room in the directory to add the new filename.

   EROFS  Read-only filesystem.

   POSIX.1-2001 specifies: an error message may be written  to  stdout  if
   the stream cannot be opened.

   The  standard  does  not specify the directory that tmpfile() will use.
   Glibc will try the path prefix P_tmpdir defined in  <stdio.h>,  and  if
   that fails the directory /tmp.
