I have a file field in a <form>, so the user can upload a file. As soon as the user submits the form, the file is uploaded as I understand it to a temporary directory on my server. I can find out that temp name in the $_FILES array. Is it uo to me to delete that temporary file if I don't want it anymore? I'm basically doing:

1) user submits file
2) i copy it to a specific directory on the server
3) now do I have to delete the temp file or does it somehow get removed automatically for me?
