/* mktemp.c - Create a temporary file or directory.

USE_MKTEMP(NEWTOY(mktemp, ">1qd(directory)p(tmpdir):", TOYFLAG_BIN))

config MKTEMP
  bool "mktemp"
  default y
    usage: mktemp [-dq] [-p DIR] [TEMPLATE]

    Safely create a new file "DIR/TEMPLATE" and print its name.

    -d	Create directory instead of file (--directory)
    -p	Put new file in DIR (--tmpdir)
    -q	Quiet, no error messages

    Each X in TEMPLATE is replaced with a random printable character. The
    default TEMPLATE is tmp.XXXXXX, and the default DIR is $TMPDIR if set,
    else "/tmp".

#define FOR_mktemp
#include "toys.h"

  char *tmpdir;

void mktemp_main(void)
  int d_flag = toys.optflags & FLAG_d;
  char *template = *toys.optargs;

  if (!template) template = "tmp.XXXXXX";

  if (!TT.tmpdir) TT.tmpdir = getenv("TMPDIR");
  if (!TT.tmpdir) TT.tmpdir = "/tmp";

  snprintf(toybuf, sizeof(toybuf), "%s/%s", TT.tmpdir, template);

  if (d_flag ? !mkdtemp(toybuf) : mkstemp(toybuf) == -1) {
    if (toys.optflags & FLAG_q) toys.exitval = 1;
    else perror_exit("Failed to create %s %s/%s",
                     d_flag ? "directory" : "file", TT.tmpdir, template);
  } else xputs(toybuf);
