/tmp file??- same as a log file???

greenspun.com : LUSENET : S-Mart Shopping Cart : One Thread

I am failry new to perl, and cgi, but have had remarkable success modifying all sorts of scripts, etc. The /tmp file is a new one to me, however. I have successfully used a log file, and the /tmp file sounds sort of like how the log functions, are they the same? Where do most people put their /tmp files and what do they call them? Thanks

The script will generate a temporally file to store the information of the product selected by the visitor in the cart in the TMP directory.

God bless!
