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.
