Description Bill Nottingham 2006-03-21 15:44:04 EST
Description of problem:

The temporary directory is hardcoded as /tmp/stap<mkdtemp>.

It could be nice to have it specifiable (so you don't have to parse
the command output to find it with -k, or because you just want
to write it somewhere else.)

Arguably, it should honor TMPDIR, as gcc does.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Already tracked on systemtap bugzilla.
Comment 2 Frank Ch. Eigler 2006-06-15 12:00:00 EDT
TMPDIR is now respected in the 0.5.7 build.
