Hello, all,

Quick question:  I have noticed that CreateUUID() creates a UUID that is ALL-CAPS.  Wouldn't there be more UUIDs if they were in miXeD-cAse?

V/r,

Most other systems require the use of lower-case characters, and I'm not aware of any systems that would respect mixed-case characters within a UUID. So I think that while you are correct, no one developing UUID algorithms have felt the need to expand the possibility space by doing this.
