NAME
       OSSP::uuid - OSSP uuid Perl Binding

DESCRIPTION
       OSSP uuid is a ISO-C:1999 application programming interface (API) and corresponding
       command line interface (CLI) for the generation of DCE 1.1, ISO/IEC 11578:1996 and RFC
       4122 compliant Universally Unique Identifier (UUID). It supports DCE 1.1 variant UUIDs of
       version 1 (time and node based), version 3 (name based, MD5), version 4 (random number
       based) and version 5 (name based, SHA-1). Additional API bindings are provided for the
       languages ISO-C++:1998, Perl:5 and PHP:4/5. Optional backward compatibility exists for the
       ISO-C DCE-1.1 and Perl Data::UUID APIs.

       OSSP::uuid is the Perl binding to the OSSP uuid API.  Three variants are provided:

   TIE-STYLE API
       The TIE-style API is a functionality-reduced wrapper around the OO-style API and intended
       for very high-level convenience programming:

       "use OSSP::uuid;"
       tie" my $uuid, 'OSSP::uuid::tie', $mode, ...;"
       "$uuid = [ $mode, ... ];"
       "print "UUID=$uuid\n";"
       "untie $uuid;"

   OO-STYLE API
       The OO-style API is a wrapper around the C-style API and intended for high-level regular
       programming.

       "use OSSP::uuid;"
       "my $uuid = "new" OSSP::uuid;"
       "$uuid->"load"($name);"
       "$uuid->"make"($mode, ...);"
       "$result = $uuid->"isnil"();"
       "$result = $uuid->"compare"($uuid2);"
       "$uuid->"import"($fmt, $data_ptr);"
       "$data_ptr = $uuid->"export"($fmt);"
       "[(]$str[, $rc)] = $uuid->"error"();"
       "$ver = $uuid->"version"();"
       "undef $uuid;"

       Additionally, the strings "v1", "v3", "v4", "v5" and "mc" can be used in $mode and the
       strings "bin", "str", and "txt" can be used for $fmt.

   C-STYLE API
       The C-style API is a direct mapping of the OSSP uuid ISO-C API to Perl and is intended for
       low-level programming. See uuid(3) for a description of the functions and their expected
       arguments.

       "use OSSP::uuid qw(:all);"
       "my $uuid; $rc = "uuid_create"($uuid);"
       "$rc = "uuid_load"($uuid, $name);"
       "$rc = "uuid_make"($uuid, $mode, ...);"
       "$rc = "uuid_isnil"($uuid, $result);"
       "$rc = "uuid_compare"($uuid, $uuid2, $result);"
       "$rc = "uuid_import"($uuid, $fmt, $data_ptr, $data_len);"
       "$rc = "uuid_export"($uuid, $fmt, $data_ptr, $data_len);"
       "$str = "uuid_error"($rc);"
       "$ver = "uuid_version"();"
       "$rc = "uuid_destroy"($uuid);"

       Additionally, the following constants are exported for use in $rc, $mode, $fmt and $ver:

       "UUID_VERSION", "UUID_LEN_BIN", "UUID_LEN_STR", "UUID_RC_OK", "UUID_RC_ARG",
       "UUID_RC_MEM", "UUID_RC_SYS", "UUID_RC_INT", "UUID_RC_IMP", "UUID_MAKE_V1",
       "UUID_MAKE_V3", "UUID_MAKE_V4", "UUID_MAKE_V5", "UUID_MAKE_MC", "UUID_FMT_BIN",
       "UUID_FMT_STR", "UUID_FMT_SIV", "UUID_FMT_TXT".

EXAMPLES
       The following two examples create the version 3 UUID
       "02d9e6d5-9467-382e-8f9b-9300a64ac3cd", both via the OO-style and the C-style API. Error
       handling is omitted here for easier reading, but has to be added for production-quality
       code.

	 #   TIE-style API (very high-level)
	 use OSSP::uuid;
	 tie my $uuid, 'OSSP::uuid::tie';
	 $uuid = [ "v1" ];
	 print "UUIDs: $uuid, $uuid, $uuid\n";
	 $uuid = [ "v3", "ns:URL", "http://www.ossp.org/" ];
	 print "UUIDs: $uuid, $uuid, $uuid\n";
	 untie $uuid;

	 #   OO-style API (high-level)
	 use OSSP::uuid;
	 my $uuid    = new OSSP::uuid;
	 my $uuid_ns = new OSSP::uuid;
	 $uuid_ns->load("ns:URL");
	 $uuid->make("v3", $uuid_ns, "http://www.ossp.org/");
	 undef $uuid_ns;
	 my $str = $uuid->export("str");
	 undef $uuid;
	 print "$str\n";

	 #   C-style API (low-level)
	 use OSSP::uuid qw(:all);
	 my $uuid;    uuid_create($uuid);
	 my $uuid_ns; uuid_create($uuid_ns);
	 uuid_load($uuid_ns, "ns:URL");
	 uuid_make($uuid, UUID_MAKE_V3, $uuid_ns, "http://www.ossp.org/");
	 uuid_destroy($uuid_ns);
	 my $str; uuid_export($uuid, UUID_FMT_STR, $str, undef);
	 uuid_destroy($uuid);
	 print "$str\n";
