Lotus Script: Where can i put temporary files on Mac OS X?

Hello out there,

i have some Lotus Script Code that stores some data in a temporary directory. In Windows it just uses c:\temp\ which works almost always. On a Mac it seems to be difficult. Although there is a /tmp/ directory can't create a file in there. It says the directory doesn't exist. Changing rights to 777 didn't help. Probably i have to access the paths in a different way?

Thanks for help

Pick up the Notes data directory from NOTES.INI (well, Notes preferences, on the Mac).

Use NotesSession.GetEnvironmentString("Directory", true)

You may want to create your own temp folder within there, so it doesn't getmixed in with "real" Notes data.
