UUID(3)		       FreeBSD Library Functions Manual		       UUID(3)

NAME
     uuid_compare, uuid_create,	uuid_create_nil, uuid_equal, uuid_from_string,
     uuid_hash,	uuid_is_nil, uuid_to_string -- DCE 1.1 compliant UUID func-
     tions

LIBRARY
     Standard C	Library	(libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <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	parameter.  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.

SEE ALSO
     uuidgen(1), uuidgen(2)

BUGS
     This manpage can be improved.

STANDARDS
     The UUID functions	conform	to the DCE 1.1 RPC specification.
