Subpackage Descriptions
complete This is the libuuid-standard metapackage. It pulls in all subpackages of libuuid-standard.
primary The UUID library is used to generate unique identifiers for objects that may be accessible beyond the local system. This library generates UUIDs compatible with those created by the Open Software Foundation (OSF) Distributed Computing Environment (DCE) utility uuidgen. The UUIDs generated by this library can be reasonably expected to be unique within a system, and unique across all systems. They could be used, for instance, to generate unique HTTP cookies across multiple web servers without communication between the servers, and without fear of a name clash.
tools This package contains the uuidgen tool.
dev This is the developer subpackage of the libuuid-standard port. It may contain headers, pc files, static and PIC libraries and SO links.
man This is the man page subpackage of the libuuid-standard port.
