Module documentation for

Functions for creating temporary files and directories.



  • Generated directory names are now based on random hex strings rather than PIDs.

    This got a major version bump as a courtesy to users who may depend on the specific form of generated names, but that form is not part of the API contract and should not be depended upon.

  • Improve the docs


  • Limit support to GHC 7.0+
  • Add new functions: writeTempFile, writeSystemTempFile, emptyTempFile, emptySystemTempFile
  • Make sure that system* functions return canonicalized paths
  • Modernize the code base, add tests and documentation
