perl OSSP::UUID - OSSP uuid Perl Binding
OSSP uuid is an ISO-C and Perl application programming interface (API) and corresponding command line interface (CLI) for the generation of DCE 1.1 and ISO/IEC 11578:1996 compliant Universally Unique Identifier (UUID). It supports DCE 1.1 variant UUIDs of version 1 (time and node based), version 3 (name based) and version 4 (random number based).
UUIDs are 128 bit numbers which are intended to have a high likelihood of uniqueness over space and time and are computationally difficult to guess. They are globally unique identifiers which can be locally generated without contacting a global registration authority. UUIDs are intended as unique identifiers for both mass tagging objects with an extremely short lifetime and to reliably identifying very persistent objects across a network.
OSSP::uuid provides two Perl APIs:
The OO-style API is a wrapper around the C-style API and intended for high-level and regular programming.
The C-style API is a direct mapping of the OSSP uuid ISO-C API to Perl and is intended for low-level programming.
The Debian package provides also Data::UUID interface so OSSP::uuid can be used as free replacement for non-DFSG Perl module.
