A query about %TMP% and %TEMP% in Windows yielded this reply:

"Those environment variables have existed by
default in every version of Windows since 95.
Environment variables can be renamed or deleted,
so you should still check to make sure it has a
valid value before using it."


Maybe there could be some heuristic to assign *TEMP-DIR*
such as: try %TEMP%, failing that try %TMP%, failing that assume
current working directory. Just guessing here.

hope this helps,
