tempdir2
function tempDir2 = tempdir2
%TEMPDIR2  Return temporary directory.
%		DIR = TEMPDIR2 returns as a temporary directory the directory
%		<TEMPDIR>/<USERNAME>@<HOSTNAME>/MATLAB. This directory is user- and
%		host-specific and thus better suited in networks/clusters than the
%		temporary directory returned by Matlab function TEMPDIR.
