       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.
       Files are created u+rw, and directories	u+rwx,	minus  umask  restric‐

       -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 a slash.  This
	      option is implied if TEMPLATE does not end in X

       -p DIR, --tmpdir[=DIR]
	      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

       -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
