Unique name for temporary file
tmpName = tempname
tmpName = tempname returns a character
tmpName, suitable for use as a temporary
file path in your system’s temporary folder.
Create a temporary file name that has the extension,
.dat, by concatenating two character vectors.
tmpName = [tempname,'.dat'];
Create a temporary file name.
filename = tempname;
Create a new file with the temporary file name, and write data to the file.
fileID = fopen(filename,'w'); fwrite(fileID,magic(5)); fclose(fileID);
In most cases,
a universally unique identifier (UUID). However, if you run MATLAB® without JVM™ software,
tempname generates a random character vector
using the CPU counter and time, which is not guaranteed to be unique.
For more information about the MATLAB startup option that does
not load JVM software, see Commonly Used Startup Options.
