Obtain thread-safe temporary file names

Share:

Description

This function is a wrapper around tempfile, which creates temporary file names whose path contains the process ID of the calling process. This avoids clashes between threads created by functions such as mclapply (in the “parallel” package), which can easily occur with the standard tempfile function.

Usage

1
threadSafeTempFile(pattern = "file")

Arguments

pattern

Character vector giving the initial part of each file name.

Value

A character vector of temporary file names. No files are actually created.
