+ <longdescription>
+ The functions for creating temporary files and directories in the base library are quite limited. The unixutils
+ package contains some good ones, but they aren&#39;t portable to Windows.
+ This library just repackages the Cabal implementations of its own temporary file and folder functions so that
+ you can use them without linking against Cabal or depending on it being installed.
+ This is a better maintained fork of the &quot;temporary&quot; package.
