What are Temporary Files?

Temporary Files are used by computer programs to store data temporarily while the program is in execution. They are used as a backup in case the program halts. Usually, a program deletes the temporary files after it has completed its tasks. Some programs also create temporary files when there isn't enough memory available for allocating to task, when the data is bigger than the architecture's address space, or even as a form of communication between multiple processes.
