Function UuidCreate() Foundation
Create a Universally Unique IDentifier
UuidCreate() --> xUUID
The function UuidCreate() returns a binary character string with the length 16. Any character from the range Chr(0) to Chr(255) can be included.
With the function UuidCreate() an Universally Unique IDentifier can be created. This identifier can be used as primary key in a database. It can also be used as identifier for persistent information or information exchanged via the Internet.
Any character - even special characters - can be inclued in the UUID. Therefore a UUID is neither radable nor suitable for textual output. By using the function UuidToChar() the UUID can be transformed to a readable and printable representation.
