SYNOPSIS

DESCRIPTION

       The   uuid_parse   function  converts  the  UUID  string  given  by  in  into  the  binary

       bytes plus the trailing '\0').

RETURN VALUE

       Upon successfully parsing the input string, 0 is returned, and the UUID is stored  in  the
       location pointed to by uu, otherwise -1 is returned.
