tmpfileCreates a temporary file

Description

resource tmpfile ( void )

Creates a temporary file with a unique name in read-write (w+) mode and returns a file handle .

The file is automatically removed when closed (using fclose()), or when the script ends.

For details, consult your system documentation on the tmpfile(3) function, as well as the stdio.h header file.

Return Values

Returns a file handle, similar to the one returned by fopen(), for the new file, or FALSE on failure.

Examples

<?php
$temp 
tmpfile();
fwrite($temp"writing to tempfile");
fseek($temp0);
echo 
fread($temp1024);
fclose($temp); // this removes the file
?>

The above example will output:
