       pam-tmpdir-helper - create safe temporary directory


       <not invoked manually>


       A helper binary for the pam_tmpdir module, pam-tmpdir-helper is invoked
       to create a secure temporary directory for the invoking  user.   It  is
       quite  simple  and  is  called  on  behalf  on  the user by the session
       component of the pam_tmpdir module.  It is not harmful to  call  it  by
       hand,  but will not give out any diagnostics, nor error messages, apart
       from its return value.  It logs to syslog.


       This program is not intended to be called directly by  users  and  will
       log  to  syslog  if  it  is called imporperly (i.e., by some one trying
       exploit it).
