The module contains one function, generate(), which returns 36-character long strings containing GUIDs. These look something like: b09e53f4-60e9-41a6-8b30-526b69c28b5d The parameter indicates the number of GUIDs to generate (the default i +s 1). In scalar context, returns a single guid, while in array context it returns the specified number guids in an array. } These can be used in a MIDL file for class, interface, or library declarations, or in various other places related to COM. =head1 INSTALL Prerequisite: module Win32-API. Simply copy this file to C:\Perl\site\lib\Win32\API\ =head1 AUTHOR Rudi Farkas, =head1 SEE ALSO CoCreateGuid() in Win32 API documentation. Win32::Guid module by Ken Bandes, "Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery" This module is functionally equivalent to Ken's, only using the Win32::API rather than an xs-generated dll. =head1 COPYRIGHT (c) 2001 Rudi Farkas.
