Description

PIRC's heredoc preprocessor writes its intermediate output to a file, called 'heredoc.out'. Two things should be done to improve this: 1. use a better name for the intermediate output, based on the name of the file being parsed. 2. delete the intermediate file by default, and add an option to keep it ('don't delete intermediate files')

This should be implemented.

when heredoc-only is requested, output goes to stdout, unless -o option is specified, in which case the output is written to the specified file.

when preprocess-only is requested, output goes to stdout, unless -o option is specified, in which case the output is written to the specified file.

in normal use, heredoc output is written to a temp. file (generated using _tempnam function).
