  • Adds reference to wp_delete_file() instead of unlink()

Hi there, thanks for the ticket!

Depending on the context, it looks like moving the temporary file to another location might also be common here, so instead of mentioning unlink() or wp_delete_file() specifically, perhaps the DocBlock could just state that the calling function must delete or move the file.

Docs: Improve documentation for wp_tempnam() and download_url().

Instead of mentioning the unlink() function specifically, the DocBlock should state that the calling function must delete or move the temporary file.

Props bedas.
