DESCRIPTION
       The QUuid class defines a Universally Unique Identifier (UUID).

       For objects or declarations that must be uniquely identified, UUIDs (also known as GUIDs)
       are widely used in order to assign a fixed and easy to compare value to the object or
       declaration. The 128-bit value of a UUID is generated by an algorithm that guarantees that
       the value is unique.

       In Qt, UUIDs are wrapped by the QUuid struct which provides convenience functions for
       handling UUIDs. Most platforms provide a tool to generate new UUIDs, for example, uuidgen
       and guidgen.

       UUIDs generated by QUuid, are based on the Random version of the DCE (Distributed
       Computing Environment) standard.

       UUIDs can be constructed from numeric values or from strings, or using the static
       createUuid() function. They can be converted to a string with toString(). UUIDs have a
       variant() and a version(), and null UUIDs return TRUE from isNull().

   Member Type Documentation
QUuid::Variant
       This enum defines the variant of the UUID, which is the scheme which defines the layout of
       the 128-bits value.

       QUuid::VarUnknown - Variant is unknown

       QUuid::NCS - Reserved for NCS (Network Computing System) backward compatibility

       QUuid::DCE - Distributed Computing Environment, the scheme used by QUuid

       QUuid::Microsoft - Reserved for Microsoft backward compatibility (GUID)

       QUuid::Reserved - Reserved for future definition

QUuid::Version
       This enum defines the version of the UUID.

       QUuid::VerUnknown - Version is unknown

       QUuid::Time - Time-based, by using timestamp, clock sequence, and MAC network card address
       (if available) for the node sections

       QUuid::EmbeddedPOSIX - DCE Security version, with embedded POSIX UUIDs

       QUuid::Name - Name-based, by using values from a name for all sections

       QUuid::Random - Random-based, by using random numbers for all sections

MEMBER FUNCTION DOCUMENTATION
QUuid::QUuid ()
       Creates the null UUID {00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000}.

QUuid::QUuid ( uint l, ushort w1, ushort w2, uchar b1, uchar b2, uchar b3, uchar b4, uchar b5,
       uchar b6, uchar b7, uchar b8 )
       Creates a UUID with the value specified by the parameters, l, w1, w2, b1, b2, b3, b4, b5,
       b6, b7, b8.

       Example:

	   // {67C8770B-44F1-410A-AB9A-F9B5446F13EE}
	   QUuid IID_MyInterface( 0x67c8770b, 0x44f1, 0x410a, 0xab, 0x9a, 0xf9, 0xb5, 0x44, 0x6f, 0x13, 0xee )

QUuid::QUuid ( const QUuid & orig )
       Creates a copy of the QUuid orig.

QUuid::QUuid ( const QString & text )
       Creates a QUuid object from the string text. The function can only convert a string in the
       format {HHHHHHHH-HHHH-HHHH-HHHH-HHHHHHHHHHHH} (where 'H' stands for a hex digit). If the
       conversion fails a null UUID is created.

QUuid QUuid::createUuid () [static]
       Returns a new UUID of DCE variant, and Random type. The UUIDs generated are based on the
       platform specific pseudo-random generator, which is usually not a cryptographic-quality
       random number generator. Therefore, a UUID is not guaranteed to be unique cross
       application instances.

       On Windows, the new UUID is extremely likely to be unique on the same or any other system,
       networked or not.

       See also variant() and version().

bool QUuid::isNull () const
       Returns TRUE if this is the null UUID {00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000}; otherwise
       returns FALSE.

QUuid::operator QString () const
       Returns the string representation of the uuid.

       See also toString().

bool QUuid::operator!= ( const QUuid & other ) const
       Returns TRUE if this QUuid and the other QUuid are different; otherwise returns FALSE.

bool QUuid::operator< ( const QUuid & other ) const
       Returns TRUE if this QUuid is of the same variant, and lexicographically before the other
       QUuid; otherwise returns FALSE.

       See also variant().

QUuid &; QUuid::operator= ( const QUuid & uuid )
       Assigns the value of uuid to this QUuid object.

bool QUuid::operator== ( const QUuid & other ) const
       Returns TRUE if this QUuid and the other QUuid are identical; otherwise returns FALSE.

bool QUuid::operator> ( const QUuid & other ) const
       Returns TRUE if this QUuid is of the same variant, and lexicographically after the other
       QUuid; otherwise returns FALSE.

       See also variant().

QString QUuid::toString () const
       QString QUuid::toString() const

       Returns the string representation of the uuid.

QUuid::Variant QUuid::variant () const
       Returns the variant of the UUID. The null UUID is considered to be of an unknown variant.

       See also version().

QUuid::Version QUuid::version () const
       Returns the version of the UUID, if the UUID is of the DCE variant; otherwise returns
       VerUnknown.

       See also variant().

RELATED FUNCTION DOCUMENTATION
QDataStream &; operator<< ( QDataStream & s, const QUuid & id )
       Writes the uuid id to the datastream s.

QDataStream &; operator>> ( QDataStream & s, QUuid & id )
       Reads uuid from from the stream s into id.
