RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for libuuid (redhat section 3)

LIBUUID(3)			     Library Functions Manual			       LIBUUID(3)

NAME
       libuuid - DCE compatible Universally Unique Identifier library

SYNOPSIS
       #include <uuid/uuid.h>

       cc file.c -luuid

DESCRIPTION
       The  libuuid library is used to generate unique identifiers for objects that may be acces-
       sible beyond the local system.  The Linux implementation was created to uniquely  identify
       ext2 filesystems created by a machine.  This library generates UUIDs compatible with those
       created by the Open Software Foundation	(OSF)  Distributed  Computing  Environment  (DCE)
       utility uuidgen.

       The  UUIDs generated by this library can be reasonably expected to be unique within a sys-
       tem, and unique across all systems.  They could be used, for instance, to generate  unique
       HTTP  cookies  across  multiple web servers without communication between the servers, and
       without fear of a name clash.

CONFORMING TO
       OSF DCE 1.1
