/**
 * DateFormat is an abstract class for a family of classes that convert dates and
 * times from their internal representations to textual form and back again in a
 * language-independent manner. Converting from the internal representation (milliseconds
 * since midnight, January 1, 1970) to text is known as "formatting," and converting
 * from text to millis is known as "parsing."  We currently define only one concrete
 * subclass of DateFormat: SimpleDateFormat, which can handle pretty much all normal
 * date formatting and parsing actions.
 * <P>
 * DateFormat helps you to format and parse dates for any locale. Your code can
 * be completely independent of the locale conventions for months, days of the
 * week, or even the calendar format: lunar vs. solar.
 * <P>
 * To format a date for the current Locale, use one of the static factory
 * methods:
 * <pre>
 * \code
 *      DateFormat* dfmt = DateFormat::createDateInstance();
 *      UDate myDate = Calendar::getNow();
 *      UnicodeString myString;
 *      myString = dfmt->format( myDate, myString );
 * \endcode
 * </pre>
 * If you are formatting multiple numbers, it is more efficient to get the
 * format and use it multiple times so that the system doesn't have to fetch the
 * information about the local language and country conventions multiple times.
 * <pre>
 * \code
 *      DateFormat* df = DateFormat::createDateInstance();
 *      UnicodeString myString;
 *      UDate myDateArr[] = { 0.0, 100000000.0, 2000000000.0 }; // test values
 *      for (int32_t i = 0; i < 3; ++i) {
 *          myString.remove();
 *          cout << df->format( myDateArr[i], myString ) << endl;
 *      }
 * \endcode
 * </pre>
 * To get specific fields of a date, you can use UFieldPosition to
 * get specific fields.
 * <pre>
 * \code
 *      DateFormat* dfmt = DateFormat::createDateInstance();
 *      FieldPosition pos(DateFormat::YEAR_FIELD);
 *      UnicodeString myString;
 *      myString = dfmt->format( myDate, myString );
 *      cout << myString << endl;
 *      cout << pos.getBeginIndex() << "," << pos. getEndIndex() << endl;
 * \endcode
 * </pre>
 * To format a date for a different Locale, specify it in the call to
 * createDateInstance().
 * <pre>
 * \code
 *       DateFormat* df =
 *           DateFormat::createDateInstance( DateFormat::SHORT, Locale::getFrance());
 * \endcode
 * </pre>
 * You can use a DateFormat to parse also.
 * <pre>
 * \code
 *       UErrorCode status = U_ZERO_ERROR;
 *       UDate myDate = df->parse(myString, status);
 * \endcode
 * </pre>
 * Use createDateInstance() to produce the normal date format for that country.
 * There are other static factory methods available. Use createTimeInstance()
 * to produce the normal time format for that country. Use createDateTimeInstance()
 * to produce a DateFormat that formats both date and time. You can pass in
 * different options to these factory methods to control the length of the
 * result; from SHORT to MEDIUM to LONG to FULL. The exact result depends on the
 * locale, but generally:
 * <ul type=round>
 *   <li>   SHORT is completely numeric, such as 12/13/52 or 3:30pm
 *   <li>   MEDIUM is longer, such as Jan 12, 1952
 *   <li>   LONG is longer, such as January 12, 1952 or 3:30:32pm
 *   <li>   FULL is pretty completely specified, such as
 *          Tuesday, April 12, 1952 AD or 3:30:42pm PST.
 * </ul>
 * You can also set the time zone on the format if you wish. If you want even
 * more control over the format or parsing, (or want to give your users more
 * control), you can try casting the DateFormat you get from the factory methods
 * to a SimpleDateFormat. This will work for the majority of countries; just
 * remember to chck getDynamicClassID() before carrying out the cast.
 * <P>
 * You can also use forms of the parse and format methods with ParsePosition and
 * FieldPosition to allow you to
 * <ul type=round>
 *   <li>   Progressively parse through pieces of a string.
 *   <li>   Align any particular field, or find out where it is for selection
 *          on the screen.
 * </ul>
 *
 * <p><em>User subclasses are not supported.</em> While clients may write
 * subclasses, such code will not necessarily work and will not be
 * guaranteed to work stably from release to release.

     * the number of such cycles since the start date of the calendar (in the
     * ERA field of the Calendar object) is not normally part of the format,
     * and parsing may assume the wrong era. For cases such as this it is
     * recommended that clients parse using the method
     * parse(const UnicodeString&, Calendar& cal, ParsePosition&)
     * with the Calendar passed in set to the current date, or to a date
     * within the era/cycle that should be assumed if absent in the format.
