Hi I tried to search online but really could not find it. So what is the difference between $_FILES['file']['name'] and $_FILES['file']['tmp_name'], or what is the $_FILES['file']['tmp_name'] exactly?

According to http://php.net/manual/en/features.file-upload.post-method.php,

$_FILES['userfile']['name'] The original name of the file on the client machine.

$_FILES['userfile']['tmp_name'] The temporary filename of the file in which the uploaded file was stored on the server.

So what is the difference between the temporary filename and original filename?

Thank you
