Portable temporary file and directory support

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'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 "temporary" package.


Install ghc-temporary-rc as follows:

guix install ghc-temporary-rc@

Or install the latest version:

guix install ghc-temporary-rc

You can also install packages in augmented, pure or containerized environments for development or simply to try them out without polluting your user profile. See the guix shell documentation for more information.
