The TemporaryFile class helps with the handling of temporary files. A unique name for the temporary file is automatically chosen and the file is placed in the directory reserved for temporary files (see Path::temp()). Obtain the path by calling the path() method (inherited from File).
The TemporaryFile class does not actually create the file - this is up to the application. The class does, however, delete the temporary file - either in the destructor, or immediately before the application terminates.

Creates the TemporaryFile.
const std::string & tempDir
