 Microsoft Repository - basic questions

I need clarification on the difference between two arguments passed in a
function call from the "Directory and File" example.

The following is the function call:

Set IDir = CDir.CreateInterfaceDef(OBJID_NULL, "IDir", IID_IDir, Nothing,

My question is what is the difference between the object guid which will be
generated as a result of passing OBJID_NULL and the IID_IDIR argument which
is the "global identifier associated with the signature for this interface."

The second question concerns the creation of the IID_IDIR which is created
by the following:

IID_IDir = InitGuid(&HE1, &H1D, &H4C, &HD2, &HB9, &H9B, &HCF, &H11, &H92,
&H15, 0, &HAA, 0, &HA1, &HEB, &H95),

where InitGuid is defined as:

Function InitGuid(a As Byte, b As Byte, c As Byte, d As Byte, _
e As Byte, f As Byte, g As Byte, h As Byte, _
i As Byte, j As Byte, k As Byte, l As Byte, _
m As Byte, n As Byte, o As Byte, p As Byte) As Variant

Dim Guid(0 To 15) As Byte

Guid(0) = a
Guid(1) = b
Guid(2) = c
Guid(3) = d
Guid(4) = e
Guid(5) = f
Guid(6) = g
Guid(7) = h
Guid(8) = i
Guid(9) = j
Guid(10) = k
Guid(11) = l
Guid(12) = m
Guid(13) = n
Guid(14) = o
Guid(15) = p

InitGuid = Guid
End Function.

My question is how did the author derive the argument passed to InitGuid.
It seems to be arbitrarily made up.  Any help or pointers to help is
