GetTempFile

Synopsis

                  GetTempFile(directory, filenameprefix)

Returns the full path to a uniquely named temporary file that ColdFusion creates and saves in directory. The filename is assigned by taking up to the first three characters of filenameprefix, appending a unique string to them, and tacking on a .tmp extension. The following example creates a temporary file that begins with “tmp_” and saves it to the current directory:

<cfset MyTempFile = GetTempFile(GetDirectoryFromPath(GetBaseTemplatePath( )), "tmp_")>
   
<cfoutput>
<b>Temporary file:</b> #GetFileFromPath(MyTempFile)#<br>
<b>Path:</b> #GetDirectoryFromPath(MyTempFile)#
</cfoutput>
