NAME

       sd_id128_to_string, sd_id128_from_string - Format or parse 128-bit IDs as strings

SYNOPSIS

       #include <systemd/sd-id128.h>

       char *sd_id128_to_string(sd_id128_t id, char s[33]);

       int sd_id128_from_string(const char *s, sd_id128_t *ret);

DESCRIPTION

       sd_id128_to_string() formats a 128-bit ID as a character string. It expects the ID and a
       string array capable of storing 33 characters. The ID will be formatted as 32 lowercase
       hexadecimal digits and be terminated by a NUL byte.

       sd_id128_from_string() implements the reverse operation: it takes a 33 character string
       with 32 hexadecimal digits (either lowercase or uppercase, terminated by NUL) and parses
       them back into a 128-bit ID returned in ret. Alternatively, this call can also parse a
       37-character string with a 128-bit ID formatted as RFC UUID.

       For more information about the "sd_id128_t" type see sd-id128(3). Note that these calls
       operate the same way on all architectures, i.e. the results do not depend on endianness.

       When formatting a 128-bit ID into a string, it is often easier to use a format string for
       printf(3). This is easily done using the SD_ID128_FORMAT_STR and SD_ID128_FORMAT_VAL()
       macros. For more information see sd-id128(3).

RETURN VALUE

       sd_id128_to_string() always succeeds and returns a pointer to the string array passed in.
       sd_id128_from_string returns 0 on success, in which case ret is filled in, or a negative
       errno-style error code.

NOTES

       The sd_id128_to_string() and sd_id128_from_string() interfaces are available as a shared
       library, which can be compiled and linked to with the "libsystemd" pkg-config(1) file.
