$TMPDIR



Hello,

It would seem that Mac OS X Leopard defines the environment variable
$TMPDIR in at least interactive shells (sessions) for non-root users
and that this definition is specific to each user. For instance,
user1 has the following for $TMPDIR:

	/var/folders/9Y/9YL5MvFhGfySA5DvYnUpJE+++TI/-Tmp-/

while user2 has:

	/var/folders/+o/+ox+jB5AF54anKmJQCrdVk+++TM/-Tmp-/

Each user always gets the same definition for $TMPDIR.

**************************
How (by what) is $TMPDIR set?

Thanks,
Michael Witten
