TempFile

Extends \Task

This task sets a property to the name of a temporary file.

Unlike PhingFile::createTempFile(), this task does not (by default) actually create the temporary file, but it does guarantee that the file did not exist when the task was executed.

Examples:

<tempfile property="temp.file" />

create a temporary file

<tempfile property="temp.file" suffix=".xml" />

create a temporary file with the .xml suffix.

<tempfile property="temp.file" destDir="build"/>

create a temp file in the build subdir
