Hi,

I don't think this is doing what the OP needed:

In := f1:=SymbolName[Unique["plot0"]] <> ".jpg"
In := f1
Out:= plot01.jpg
      ...
      plot09.jpg
      plot010.jpg

the numbers are not padded.


the second doesn't seem to work at all  :-(

In := f2:=SymbolName[Unique["plot0", {Temporary}]] <> ".jpg"
In := f2
Out:= plot011.jpg
In := f2
Out:= plot011.jpg

Regards,
Marcus
