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.

Package version:1.5.1-1

       Data::UUID - OSSP uuid Backward Compatibility Perl Binding

       Data::UUID is the OSSP uuid backward compatibility Perl bind‐
       ing to the API of the original Data::UUID module. It allows
       other Data::UUID based Perl modules to run with OSSP::uuid
       without changes.
