UUID::Random::Secure - Like UUID::Random, but uses Math::Random::Secure for random numbers
This document describes version 0.004 of UUID::Random::Secure (from Perl distribution UUID-Random-Secure), released on 2021-01-24.
Use like you would UUID::Random:
Generate a single v4 UUID string in the formatted 32 hexadecimal digits:
Note that this module does not produce RFC 4122-compliant v4 (random) UUIDs (no encoding of variant and version information into the UUID). See "generate_rfc" for UUIDs that comply to RFC 4122.
Generate RFC-compliant a single v4 UUID string in the form of:
where x is any hexadecimal digits ([0-9a-f]), M is 4, and N is either 8, 9, a, or b (1000, 1001, 1010, or 1011 in binary).
