FFIND, temp files? ... not deleted?

May 20, 2008
Syracuse, NY, USA
Though neither works, the first of the ECHO | FFIND commands below does not use a temp file while the second does (and doesn't delete it). How does it work? Neither uses a temp file in v24.

v:\> v:\> watchdir twatch %tmp

v:\> echo "1 2 3"^r^n1 2 3 | ffind /kmve"\"1 2 3\""

v:\> echo "1 2 3"^r^n1 2 3 | ffind /kmve"\^q1 2 3\^q"

10:17:33.959275  MODIFY   ffi8CDE.tmp
