SYNOPSIS


.In uuid.h int32_t uuid_compare "uuid_t *uuid1" "uuid_t *uuid2" "uint32_t *status" void uuid_create "uuid_t *uuid" "uint32_t *status" void uuid_create_nil "uuid_t *uuid" "uint32_t *status" int32_t uuid_equal "uuid_t *uuid1" "uuid_t *uuid2" "uint32_t *status" void uuid_from_string "const char *str" "uuid_t *uuid" "uint32_t *status" uint16_t uuid_hash "uuid_t *uuid" "uint32_t *status" int32_t uuid_is_nil "uuid_t *uuid" "uint32_t *status" void uuid_to_string "uuid_t *uuid" "char **str" "uint32_t *status"

DESCRIPTION

The family of DCE 1.1 compliant UUID functions allow applications to operate on universally unique identifiers, or UUIDs. The uuid_create and uuid_create_nil functions create UUIDs. The uuid_compare, uuid_equal and uuid_is_nil functions can be used to test UUIDs. To convert from the binary representation to the string representation or vice versa, use uuid_to_string or uuid_from_string respectively. A 16-bit hash value can be obtained by calling uuid_hash.

RETURN VALUES

The successful or unsuccessful completion of the function is returned in the status argument. Possible values are:

uuid_s_ok The function completed successfully.
uuid_s_bad_version The UUID does not have a known version.
uuid_s_invalid_string_uuid The string representation of an UUID is not valid.
uuid_s_no_memory The meaning of the code escaped the writers mind.
