Module: Celluloid::UUID

Defined in:
lib/celluloid/uuid.rb

Overview

Clearly Ruby doesn't have enough UUID libraries This one aims to be fast and simple with good support for multiple threads If there's a better UUID library I can use with similar multithreaded performance, I certainly wouldn't mind using a gem for this!
