NAME ^

APR::UUID - Perl API for manipulating APR UUIDs

Synopsis ^

  use APR::UUID ();
  
  # get a random UUID and format it as a string
  my $uuid = APR::UUID->new->format;
  # $uuid = e.g. 'd48889bb-d11d-b211-8567-ec81968c93c6';
  
  # same as the object returned by APR::UUID->new
  my $uuid_parsed = APR::UUID->parse($uuid);

Description ^

APR::UUID is used to get and manipulate random UUIDs.

It allows you to create random UUIDs, which when formatted returns a string like:

  'd48889bb-d11d-b211-8567-ec81968c93c6';

which can be parsed back into the APR::UUID object with parse().

API ^

APR::UUID provides the following functions and/or methods:

format

Convert an APR::UUID object object into a string presentation:

  my $uuid_str = $uuid->format;
obj: $uuid ( APR::UUID object )
ret: $uuid_str

returns a string representation of the object (.e.g 'd48889bb-d11d-b211-8567-ec81968c93c6').

since: 2.0.00

new

Create a APR::UUID object using the random engine:

  my $uuid = APR::UUID->new;
class: APR::UUID ( APR::UUID class )
ret: $uuid ( APR::UUID object )
since: 2.0.00

DESTROY

  $uuid->DESTROY;
obj: APR::UUID ( APR::UUID object )
ret: no return value
since: 2.0.00

Do not call this method, it's designed to be only called by Perl when the variable goes out of scope. If you call it yourself you will get a segfault when perl will call DESTROY on its own.

parse

Convert a UUID string into an APR::UUID object object:

  $uuid = APR::UUID->parse($uuid_str)
arg1: $uuid_str (string)

UUID string (.e.g 'd48889bb-d11d-b211-8567-ec81968c93c6')

ret: $uuid ( APR::UUID object )

The new object.
