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.
