@deftypefn Replacement int mkstemps (char *@var{pattern}, int @var{suffix_len})

Generate a unique temporary file name from @var{pattern}.
@var{pattern} has the form:

@end example

@var{suffix_len} tells us how long @var{suffix} is (it can be zero
length).  The last six characters of @var{pattern} before @var{suffix}
must be @samp{XXXXXX}; they are replaced with a string that makes the
filename unique.  Returns a file descriptor open on the file for
reading and writing.
