UUID::Random - Generate random uuid strings
my $uuid = UUID::Random::generate;
This module generates random uuid strings. It does not satisfy any of the points listed in RFC 4122 (http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc4122) but the default format.
If you need RFC compliant UUID strings have a look at Data::UUID
