Obtain thread-safe temporary file names
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
threadSafeTempFile(pattern = "file")
Character vector giving the initial part of each file name.
A character vector of temporary file names. No files are actually created.
