On fail‐ ure an explanation will be printed to stderr, obtained from the explain_mkostemp(3) func‐ tion, and then the process terminates by calling exit(EXIT_FAILURE).

On failure an explanation will be printed to stderr, obtained from the explain_mkostemp(3) function, but still returns to the caller. templat The template, exactly as to be passed to the mkostemp(3) system call. flags The flags, exactly as to be passed to the mkostemp(3) system call.
