# OEFileTempPath¶

std::string OEFileTempPath()


Returns a system dependent directory for storing temporary files.

On Linux or OSX this defaults to /tmp, unless the TMPDIR environment variable is specified, in which case that directory is used if it exists.

On Windows, this defaults to C:\\Temp and then C:\\Tmp if that doesn’t exist. If the TEMP or TMP environment variables are set and point to a valid directory, that directory is used instead.
