-format, -f FORMAT ToString format to use (see FORMATS)
-upper, -u uppercase GUID
-n NUMBER produce NUMBER GUIDs
-bojangles, -b produces GUIDs with all 'AA' strings
replaced with 'BB' strings
FORMATS:

00000000000000000000000000000000
D 32 digits separated by hyphens:
00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000
B 32 digits separated by hyphens, enclosed in braces:
{{00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000}}
P 32 digits separated by hyphens, enclosed in parentheses:

X Four hexadecimal values enclosed in braces, where the
fourth value is a subset of eight hexadecimal values
