In my case, I just really want the filename. Whether or not I change the
extension, that file is mine to do with what I will. Also,
since it's not in the same folder as the originating file, it can be the exact
same name, extension and all, and it will still be a different file that what
was generated by the framework. I should take care of file cleanup, and
that zero byte file is still in the temp directory...
true! So, maybe I was a little quick to post about this one, but it was one
of those things that struck me as particularly useful. If you just want a
temporary filename, and want to clean up the file that is created by
GetTempFileName(), perhaps this will work a little better:
string filename = Path.GetTempFileName();
Okay y'all...rip it to shreds :) If I've missed something else obvious, call
me out. Or, if you have a preferred method of generating temporary file names,
show the way.
