On failure an explanation will be printed to stderr, obtained from the explain_tmpnam(3) function, and then the process terminates by calling exit(EXIT_FAILURE). The explain_tmpnam_on_error function is used to call the tmpnam(3) system call. On failure an explanation will be printed to stderr, obtained from the explain_tmpnam(3) function, but still returns to the caller. pathname The pathname, exactly as to be passed to the tmpnam(3) system call.
