uuid_unparse(3) [linux man page]

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 '') 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 digits 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. CONFORMING TO
