Creates a temporary directory upon execute and exposes its path as flow variable. This can be useful in (a) demo application where the actual path of the output is not all that relevant, e.g. the KNIME public workflow server and (b) KNIME WebPortal and quickform flows, where some data is written, which is later downloaded by means of, e.g. a web link.
This legacy file handling node has been replaced by the Create Temp Folder and will become deprecated in the foreseeable future. For further information about the new file handling framework see the File Handling Guide.
