TTemporaryFileStream – via DELPHI AREA » How to have a temporary stream, with no size limit

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/04/17

I needed a TTemporaryFileStream and found it at [WayBackDELPHI AREA » How to have a temporary stream, with no size limit.

It taught me that CreateFileA and CreateFileW (the ANSI and Unicode versions of [WayBackCreateFile function (Windows)) accept a FILE_FLAG_DELETE_ON_CLOSE parameter, so as soon as you close the handle, Windows will dispose of the file.

Note however that this will apply to the file handle so if you want to open it multiple times, you need [WayBackDuplicateHandle function (Windows) as per [Archive.isThe FILE_FLAG_DELETE_ON_CLOSE flag applies to the handle, also known as the file object, which is not the same as the file – The Old New Thing
