#810 closed defect (fixed)

"create-temporary-file" insufficient

Reported by: felix winkelmann Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: core libraries Version: 4.7.x
Keywords: create-temporary-file Cc:
Estimated difficulty:


create-temporary-file only uses a random fixnum + an existance test, which is insufficient if many files are created in parallel by several processes. At least some more "randomness" (e.g. the PID) should go into the generated filename.
