Hi folks,

This is an easy one, but I can’t find a way to do it.
It’s there, in ruby, any easy means to generate an GUID (Global Unique
Identifier)?

Thank,

“require_gem” is obsolete, use “gem” if you need to specify a specific
version of a gem. Mostly you should just use plain “require” to load a
library that was installed by RubyGems.

I should know that :slight_smile:

I guess it’s time to replace the old docs I was copying & pasting
from.
