Generates a Universally Unique IDentifier (UUID).

Return value

A 16 byte integer represented as a hex string formatted with 4 hyphens.

Overrides UuidInterface::generate

File

core/lib/Drupal/Component/Uuid/Php.php, line 16

Class

Php
Generates a UUID v4 (RFC 4122 section 4.4) using PHP code.

Namespace

Drupal\Component\Uuid

Code

public function generate() {

  // Obtain a random string of 32 hex characters.
  $hex = bin2hex(random_bytes(16));

  // The variable names $time_low, $time_mid, $time_hi_and_version,
  // $clock_seq_hi_and_reserved, $clock_seq_low, and $node correlate to
  // the fields defined in RFC 4122 section 4.1.2.
  //
  // Use characters 0-11 to generate 32-bit $time_low and 16-bit $time_mid.
  $time_low = substr($hex, 0, 8);

  // Use characters 12-15 to generate 16-bit $time_hi_and_version.
  // The 4 most significant bits are the version number (0100 == 0x4).
  // We simply skip character 12 from $hex, and concatenate the strings.
  $time_hi_and_version = '4' . substr($hex, 13, 3);

  // Use characters 16-17 to generate 8-bit $clock_seq_hi_and_reserved.
  // The 2 most significant bits are set to one and zero respectively.
