Remarks
fTempFile is used to find out the name of a unique temporary file. This function cannot be used to create the corresponding temporary file. To do so, use fCreate or fOpenTempFile.
Caution: For security reasons, fTempFile deletes the temporary file if it already exists. If the temporary file is used by another process, a non-fatal error will occur.
