Hi and thanks for your feedback and suggestion !
You are correct and I have already solved it my way with UUIDcomp:

To execute it's placed in /usr/local/bin ...
... and the source is stored in /usr/local/own ...
... to be changed / improved if needed ! ;-)

We human too need 2 legs: One to stand and another to run !? ;-D

With my current location I may run into problems when reinstalling
Ubuntu from scratch:
Formatting and and reinstalling will delete both the directories and its
contents !

I better change the current source location to somewhere in my ITC
folder under /home !!

Cheers, svobi
