I am creating a temp file with some "current" data in it. I want another script to have access to this temp file. How do I give the second script the filename?

I create the temp file using IO::File
$fh = IO::File->new_tmpfile    or die;
then write the data to $fh.

How do I get the temp file name to another script?

PS. Whenever you want to have another meeting at OHSU. It's available. The last one was excellent, as was the gathering afterwards at the pub.
