Dear Thomas,

Thomas Esser and we, the Debian teTeX package maintainers, have found
that your texdoctk script uses a hardcoded path for temporary files:

my $TempDir =3D "/tmp";

Sometimes it is necessary that local administrators or users set up a
different directory for temporary files. This is usually done by setting
the variable TMPDIR to the location where the files should be put, but
this is made impossible with rubibtex.=20

It would be great if you could change this. I don't know enough Perl to
suggest a solution (; for shell scripts Thomas Esser uses default values
for parameter expansion like


If you answer, please keep the bug number in the Cc.

Thanks in advance, Frank
