Hello ...

I would like to direct people's attention to the package "Ruuid" on the
Biconductor website

It's purpose is to generate UUID values, and has a simple R interface
(currently one function: getuuid(), with multiple options).

Under unix, it uses Theodore Ts'o's libuuid to create and manage these
values, while on a Win32 system it uses both the Win32 API and a subset of
the libuuid.

A S4 class was created to manage the UUID values in R.

Please let me know if you encounter any difficulty with this package.
