Subject: [Boost-users] Formatting Boost.Uuid as string

I see that you can do "basic" formatting of boost::uuids::uuid via
boost::format. This is good for basic formatting, but are there other
format specifiers one can furnish?

I'm thinking along the lines of formats such as with or without
hyphens, etc. Or an ability to extend such a feature for that matter.

See my C# WPF GuidGen for some examples:

This is based on the Microsoft GuidGen, but using WPF technology, and
with some additional formats.


Best regards,

Michael Powell
