Re: Obtaining a UUID NSString

I am not in 'dire' need of it, I can substitute it for something else if it is available, tho I would like to reduce the amount of Frameworks I need to link against. Adding the UUID functions to corebase is the best solution to be source compatible, which is what I am aiming for.

As of right now, there were only about four or five functions/method/classes in my Cocoa app that were missing from GNUstep's frameworks, and the CoreFoundation UUID functions were one of them (the others I reported). 

I use CFUUIDRef, CFUUIDCreate, CFUUIDCreateString, and CFRelease.

If just those were implemented, and the worked, I would be greatly appreciative. And GNUstep would be one step close to source compatibility with Cocoa. 

- Thanks,

Thank you for your response,

However,  -globallyUniqueString contains information (host name, the process ID, a timestamp and a counter), I would prefer a UUID that has no information encoded within it.

Is this something you're in dire need of?  If so, I can take a look at implementing CFUUID in corebase (as Niels mentioned, it's a CF implementation).  I've had little time to work on it lately, but I can make a push and probably get something working around mid to end of June.

Keep in mind, however, that very little is working in corebase right now.
