Program Explanation

This C# program is used to illustrate methods of FileInfo class. Using Path.GetTempFileName() function, we are getting a uniquely named, zero-byte temporary file on disk and return the full path of that file.


The FileInfo class is used for typical operations such as copying, moving, renaming, creating, opening, deleting, and appending to files. Using try and catch, an error message is displayed when the error occurs.
