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.

       since: 2.0.00
