I just noticed that in my home directory, I have a hidden folder called .tmpAppData, and it contains a boatload of .so files taking up over 60MB. It's the same set of six files, repeated with different random strings on the front:

XucgKCu_SSLSocket.so
Xal2pyn_libRBXML.so
XakY6EM_libREALSQLPlugin.so
XaHUkUD_libRBShell.so
XWO5ZSh_MySQLPlugin.so
XSrOPqY_libRBInternetEncodings.so

All six files in a set have the exact same date/time stamp. I didn't create this, and it definitely looks RB related, so my conclusion thus far is that when my RB console app starts up, these files are generated by my program. On first blush, it appears that these files are recreated every time I restart the app, but somehow I have older sets that take up a huge amount of space - perhaps from updating my binary?

Does anyone know what these files are for?

those are library/plugin caches for Realbasic
if you remove them, Realbasic will fail to start
