On entry, R1 contains a pointer to a three-word argument block:

A pointer to a buffer.
word 2
A target identifier for this filename. Its value must be an integer in the range 0 to 255.
word 3
Contains the length of the buffer. The length must be at least the value of L_tmpnam on the host system.


On exit, R0 contains:
  • 0 if the call is successful

If you use the same target identifier again, the same filename is returned.
