thanks a lot.
That part between folders/ and /T is unique to each user, can change
across logins, and is likely to change across reboots but there's a way
to handle that. Unix tradition (as well as formal standards like SUS and
POSIX) provides an environment variable named TMPDIR which is a
recommendation to programs of where to put temporary files instead of
the fixed shared directories /tmp/ and /var/tmp/. On MacOS TMPDIR is a
directory named 'T' at the 3rd level below /var/folders/, so instead of
that long fixed pathname you could just say:
That way you'll probably never need to change the script again.
