zuuid - UUID support class



//  Constructor
CZMQ_EXPORT zuuid_t *
    zuuid_new (void);

// Destructor CZMQ_EXPORT void zuuid_destroy (zuuid_t **self_p);

// Create UUID object from supplied ZUUID_LEN-octet value CZMQ_EXPORT zuuid_t * zuuid_new_from (const byte *source);

// Set UUID to new supplied ZUUID_LEN-octet value CZMQ_EXPORT void zuuid_set (zuuid_t *self, const byte *source);

// Set UUID to new supplied string value skipping - and { } // optional delimiters. Return 0 if OK, else returns -1. CZMQ_EXPORT int zuuid_set_str (zuuid_t *self, const char *source);

// Return UUID binary data CZMQ_EXPORT const byte * zuuid_data (zuuid_t *self);

// Return UUID binary size CZMQ_EXPORT size_t zuuid_size (zuuid_t *self);

// Returns UUID as string CZMQ_EXPORT const char * zuuid_str (zuuid_t *self);

// Return UUID in the canonical string format: 8-4-4-4-12, in lower // case. Caller does not modify or free returned value. See // CZMQ_EXPORT const char * zuuid_str_canonical (zuuid_t *self);

// Store UUID blob in target array CZMQ_EXPORT void zuuid_export (zuuid_t *self, byte *target);

// Check if UUID is same as supplied value CZMQ_EXPORT bool zuuid_eq (zuuid_t *self, const byte *compare);

// Check if UUID is different from supplied value CZMQ_EXPORT bool zuuid_neq (zuuid_t *self, const byte *compare);

// Make copy of UUID object; if uuid is null, or memory was exhausted, // returns null. CZMQ_EXPORT zuuid_t * zuuid_dup (zuuid_t *self);

// Self test of this class CZMQ_EXPORT void zuuid_test (bool verbose);


The zuuid class generates UUIDs and provides methods for working with them. If you build CZMQ with libuuid, on Unix/Linux, it will use that library. On Windows it will use UuidCreate(). Otherwise it will use a random number generator to produce convincing imitations of uuids.

Please add @discuss section in ../src/zuuid.c.


From zuuid_test method.

//  Simple create/destroy test
assert (ZUUID_LEN == 16);
assert (ZUUID_STR_LEN == 32);

zuuid_t *uuid = zuuid_new (); assert (uuid); assert (zuuid_size (uuid) == ZUUID_LEN); assert (strlen (zuuid_str (uuid)) == ZUUID_STR_LEN); zuuid_t *copy = zuuid_dup (uuid); assert (streq (zuuid_str (uuid), zuuid_str (copy)));

// Check set/set_str/export methods const char *myuuid = "8CB3E9A9649B4BEF8DE225E9C2CEBB38"; const char *myuuid2 = "8CB3E9A9-649B-4BEF-8DE2-25E9C2CEBB38"; const char *myuuid3 = "{8CB3E9A9-649B-4BEF-8DE2-25E9C2CEBB38}"; const char *myuuid4 = "8CB3E9A9649B4BEF8DE225E9C2CEBB3838"; int rc = zuuid_set_str (uuid, myuuid); assert (rc == 0); assert (streq (zuuid_str (uuid), myuuid)); rc = zuuid_set_str (uuid, myuuid2); assert (rc == 0); assert (streq (zuuid_str (uuid), myuuid)); rc = zuuid_set_str (uuid, myuuid3); assert (rc == 0); assert (streq (zuuid_str (uuid), myuuid)); rc = zuuid_set_str (uuid, myuuid4); assert (rc == -1); byte copy_uuid [ZUUID_LEN]; zuuid_export (uuid, copy_uuid); zuuid_set (uuid, copy_uuid); assert (streq (zuuid_str (uuid), myuuid));

// Check the canonical string format assert (streq (zuuid_str_canonical (uuid), "8cb3e9a9-649b-4bef-8de2-25e9c2cebb38"));
