Opens a temporary file. See the

The parameter is a string that should follow the rules for
mkstemp() templates, i.e. contain the string “XXXXXX”.
g_mkstemp() is slightly more flexible than
mkstemp() in that the
sequence does not have to occur at the very end of the template.
The X string will be modified to form the name of a file that
didn’t exist. The string should be in the GLib file name encoding.
Most importantly, on Windows it should be in UTF-8.
Available since: 2.0
