Those are temporary storage files created by programs for short term
use. They can generally be erased if not touched for a while or if you
are sure no program is using them.

[etc.]

Aren't these names characteristic of "autoconf"?

1. /tmp vs /usr/tmp vs /var/tmp



:Please help me understand temp directories.  I know what /tmp is for,
:and I know that /var/tmp is like /tmp only it is not normally cleared
:at boot-time.  But then what is /usr/tmp for?  or aren't /usr/tmp and
:/var/tmp usually used in the same implementation?

/usr/tmp and /var aren't normally in the same implementation.
