Converts a character-string representation of a Universal Unique Identifier (UUID) into a UUID.
void uuid_$decode (uuid_string, uuid, status) char *uuid_string; uuid_$t *uuid; status_$t *status;
The uuid_$decode routine returns the UUID corresponding to a valid character-string representation of a UUID.
|uuid_string||Points to the character-string representation of a UUID in the form uuid_$string_t.|
|uuid||Points to the UUID that corresponds to the character string represented in the uuid_string parameter.|
|status||Points to the completion status.|
The following call returns as my_uuid the UUID corresponding to the character-string representation in my_uuid_rep :
uuid_$decode (my_uuid_rep, &my_uuid, &status);
