UUID-Tiny Version 1.04 This is a Pure Perl module for the creation of UUIDs: - version 1 time based (with random multicast MAC address) - version 3 MD5 based - version 4 random number based - version 5 SHA-1 based The module uses a functional interface and creates binary (network byte order) or string representations. Version 3 and 5 UUIDs can be created from file content instead of "names" (strings). Be aware that, because of being a Pure Perl implementation, there are performance limits and the randomness of multicast MAC addresses and the version 4 numbers are not perfect. If you can afford module compilation and installation, you should look at Data::UUID instead!
