Add mkostempsat(3).

Authored by markj on Jul 22 2019, 8:30 PM.



This is a variant of mkostemps() which takes a directory descriptor and
returns a descriptor for a file relative to that directory. This allows
easier capsicumization of some applications.

My particular use-case is strip(1), which processes each of its input
files, storing the result in a tempfile, and renames each tempfile back
over the corresponding input file.

Does there need to be a AT_FDCWD case here to match the manpage?

LGTM other than the issue brooks noticed.

Yes, I think so.

  • Use AT_FDCWD when no relative dfd is specified.
  • Add a man page mlink.

The new block isn't really needed at all. The non-"at" mktemp functions can specify AT_FDCWD as the directory fd, which lets me get rid of the branches that I had added.

Seems like a weird spelling of strrchr? Preexisting issue.

Yeah. I'm also not sure why exactly we need this check in the first place.
