Re: Where should users have their temp files?

A better solution would be if applications always opened files in /tmp
with O_CREAT | O_EXCL.  tmpfile(3) does this but the file is always
644.  I think there should be a tmpfilem(mode_t) where the mode could
be specified.

I was forced to implement my own tmpfile(3) from tmpnam(3) to fix
similiar security problems in bash.
