UUID_UNPARSE(3) 			   Libuuid API				  UUID_UNPARSE(3)

NAME
       uuid_unparse - convert an UUID from binary representation to a string

SYNOPSIS
       #include <uuid/uuid.h>

       void uuid_unparse(uuid_t uu, char *out);
       void uuid_unparse_upper(uuid_t uu, char *out);
       void uuid_unparse_lower(uuid_t uu, char *out);

DESCRIPTION
       The  uuid_unparse  function  converts  the supplied UUID uu from the binary representation
       into a 36-byte string (plus tailing '\0') of the form 1b4e28ba-2fa1-11d2-883f-0016d3cca427
       and stores this value in the character string pointed to by out.  The case of the hex dig-
       its returned by uuid_unparse may be upper or lower case, and is dependent on  the  system-
       dependent local default.

       If  the	case  of  the  hex  digits is important then the functions uuid_unparse_upper and
       uuid_unparse_lower may be used.
