Hm. I recall someone claiming that tmpdir() is in that module or its
submodules even though it's not really documented. However, 'grep -i
tmp' on these .pm files doesn't reveal the hidden place ...

use File::Spec;
print File::Spec->tmpdir, "\n";


Can't locate object method "tmpdir" via package "File::Spec" at - line

I'm running Perl 5.005_03; do I have to upgrade File::Spec from CPAN to
a newer version, or where the hell is tmpdir()?
