NAME - Temporary location for IO functions that need access to the problem environment. Formerly defined in

See notes in


Returns: $path

Defined in

Creates all of the subdirectories between the directory specified by &getCourseTempDirectory and the address of the path.


    &createDirectory($path,$Global::tmp_directory_permission, $Global::numericalGroupID)

The path may begin with the correct path to the temporary directory. Any other prefix causes a path relative to the temporary directory to be created.

File path = /ww/webwork/pg/macros/
