(uuid s)


Creates a universally unique identifier (UUID) from the given string, using the UUID type.

The string has an expected format 8-4-4-4-12 where the numbers represent the number of hex digits. No validation is performed.

To create a UUID literal (parsed and validated at compile time), use #uuid literal.


(uuid "00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000")
;;=> #uuid "00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000"

(uuid "97bda55b-6175-4c39-9e04-7c0205c709dc")
;;=> #uuid "97bda55b-6175-4c39-9e04-7c0205c709dc"

No validation is performed:

(uuid "")
;;=> #uuid ""
