$tempfn identifier - mIRC
< mirc‎ | identifiers

$tempfn returns a temporary filename in the $mircdir using the same filename mask used by mIRC internally, such as for the /write command.

Synopsis[edit]

$tempfn

Parameters[edit]

None

Properties[edit]

None

Example[edit]

//echo -a $tempfn

It does not create the disk filename, but offers the string as a "safe" filename that can be used without it already existing as a disk file.

The string returned is $mircdir $+ mirc $+ $rand(0,999998) $+ .tm_

Note: The filename mask is the same used internally by mIRC for disk write fuctions, such as in the /write command. If a file you /write to disappears, it's possible that it exists in the same folder with a filename matching the wildcard mirc*.tm_.
