Tmpf is tiny script (written in Ruby) to write standard output to a temporary file, run an application with the name of that file as an argument, then delete the temporary file when done.

The project is useful when you want to pipe output to a program that only accepts files, not standard input. Example: cat myfile.ps | tmpf gv (equivalent to: gv myfile.ps). Despite the incredible simplicity of this script, there is nothing quite like it provided among the standard Unix tools.
