TMPDIR

temporary directory path

Description

The TMPDIR constant holds the temporary directory absolute path of a Scilab process. Each Scilab process has its own temporary directory, created and referenced to TMPDIR during Scilab startup. The temporary directory is deleted when Scilab stops.

The temporary directories are created as subdirectories of the system temporary directory and named SCI_TMP_<unique> where <unique> is some number generated at Scilab startup for the name to be unique. Under GNU/Linux, UNIX and Mac OS X, directory access rights are limited to the Scilab user.

The TMPDIR constant cannot be altered during Scilab execution. However, under GNU/Linux, UNIX and Mac OS X, the system temporary directory (usually /tmp) can be selected by altering the TMPDIR system variable.
