UUID_TIME(3)									     UUID_TIME(3)

NAME
       uuid_time - extract the time at which the UUID was created

SYNOPSIS
       #include <uuid/uuid.h>

       time_t uuid_time(uuid_t uu, struct timeval *ret_tv)

DESCRIPTION
       The  uuid_time function extracts the time at which the supplied UUID uu was created.  Note
       that the UUID creation time is encoded within the UUID, and this function can only reason-
       ably expect to extract the creation time for UUIDs created with the uuid_generate(3) func-
       tion.  It may or may not work with UUIDs created by OSF DCE uuidgen.

RETURN VALUES
       The time at which the UUID was created, in seconds since January 1, 1970 GMT (the  epoch),
       is  returned  (see  time(2)).   The  time  at  which  the UUID was created, in seconds and
       microseconds since the epoch, is also stored in the location pointed  to  by  ret_tv  (see
       gettimeofday(2)).

AUTHOR
       uuid_time was written by Theodore Y. Ts'o for the ext2 filesystem utilties.
