tempfolder()

The tempfolder( function returns the path to the current user’s temporary folder (for files you plan to use only for a short time).


Parameters

No parameters.


Description

This function returns the path to the current user’s temporary folder. The Temp folder is a place where you can store files that you only intend to use for a short time. If you create a file in this folder and don’t delete it within 3 days, the system will delete it for you. (Also, Time Machine will not backup this folder.) An alternative is the info(“cachefolder”) function, which does not delete files after 3 days.

Note: This function allows language independent access to the temporary folder, and will correctly locate the folder even if you are using a non-English system.
