BZZZZZT!!

WRONG!

You shall not continue for the microwave ;-)

#include <stdlib.h>
char *mktemp(char *template);

#include <stdlib.h>
int mkstemp(char *template);

See these functions have a rather different return type, this makes
their use quite different.

The idea between the 2 functions is similar, however the usage is
different, which is why a 1 on 1 replace will cause non-functionality.
Don't give the impression it is any easier.
