 NAME
      uuid - A dcecp object that generates and compares UUIDs

 SYNOPSIS
      uuid compare uuid uuid

      uuid create

      uuid help [operation | -verbose]

      uuid operations


 ARGUMENTS
      uuid	A UUID in the following form:

		C069d9fb6-943e-11cd-a35c-0000c08adf56


      operation The name of the uuid operation for which to display help
		information.


 DESCRIPTION
      The uuid object generates and compares Universal Unique Identifiers
      (UUIDs).	UUIDs uniquely identify DCE entities such as principals, RPC
      entries, Cell Directory Service (CDS) replicas, and so on.

 OPERATIONS
    uuid compare
      Compares two UUIDs.  The syntax is as follows:

      uuid compare uuid uuid


      The compare operation compares two UUIDs, returning 1 if they are
      equal or 0 if they are not. Because the uuid compare command handles
      the comparison of UUIDs in current and previous DCE formats, you
      should use it rather than string compare.

      Privileges Required

      No special privileges are needed to use the uuid compare command.

      Examples

      dcecp> uuid compare 03bb2688-943e-11cd-8bfd-0000c08adf56 \
      >&gt&gt> 069d9fb6-943e-11cd-a35c-0000c08adf56
      0

    uuid create
      Returns a newly generated UUID.  The syntax is as follows:

      uuid create


      The create operation returns a newly generated UUID.  It takes no
      arguments.

      Privileges Required

      No special privileges are needed to use the uuid create command.

      Examples

      dcecp> uuid create
      03bb2688-943e-11cd-8bfd-0000c08adf56
      dcecp>


    uuid help
      Returns help information about the uuid object and its operations.
      The syntax is as follows:

      uuid help [operation | -verbose]


      Options


      -verbose	Displays information about the uuid object.


      Used without an argument or option, the uuid help command returns
      brief information about each uuid operation. The optional operation
      argument is the name of an operation about which you want detailed
      information. Alternatively, you can use the -verbose option for more
      detailed information about the uuid object itself.

      Privileges Required

      No special privileges are needed to use the uuid help command.

      Examples

      dcecp> uuid help
      compare		  Compares two UUIDs for equality.
      create		  Returns a newly generated UUID.
      help		  Prints a summary of command-line options.
      operations	  Returns a list of the valid operations for this command.
