Name

uuid_unparse — convert an UUID from binary representation to a string

Synopsis

#include <uuid.h>
void uuid_unparse( uuid_t uu,
  char *out);
 
void uuid_unparse_upper( uuid_t uu,
  char *out);
 
void uuid_unparse_lower( uuid_t uu,
  char *out);
 

DESCRIPTION

The uuid_unparse function converts the supplied UUID uu from the binary representation into a 36-byte string (plus tailing '\0') of the form 1b4e28ba−2fa1−11d2−883f−0016d3cca427 and stores this value in the character string pointed to by out. The case of the hex digits returned by uuid_unparse may be upper or lower case, and is dependent on the system-dependent local default.

If the case of the hex digits is important then the functions uuid_unparse_upper and uuid_unparse_lower may be used.

CONFORMING TO

This library unparses UUIDs compatible with OSF DCE 1.1.
