tempfile behavior

Hi all,
I would like to use tempfile module to generate files having unique
names excepting that I don't want them to be removed after closing.
Does it is possible?

Looks like tempfile.mkstemp() will do what you want.

'''Unlike TemporaryFile(), the user of mkstemp() is responsible for
deleting the temporary file when done with it.'''

Thank you, it seems good.
Just another question:
>>fd, filename = tempfile.mkstemp()
type(fd)
<type 'int'>

I would expect a file descriptor, not and integer.
How do I have to use it?

File descriptors are integers. It's a low level C thing. Either use the
low level functions in `os` or open the file with the `filename`.

In particular, os.fdopen(fd) will give you a
file object.
