UUID for Prolog

This library provides predicates for dealing with UUIDs in Prolog.

There is supposed to be a uuid library already provided, but it seems not to be provided in my distribution and seems to not be able to parse a uuid from a given string. Also, because the initial purpose of this library is to communicate via Transit, I wanted the canonical representation of the UUIDs to be two 64-bit signed integers (as that's how they're represented in Transit+MsgPack, which is what Braid uses). If neither of those things are important to you, you may as well use the one that comes with SWI-Prolog.

It can be installed in SWI-Prolog using pack_install(uuid).
