/**
 *
 * SimpleDateFormat is a concrete class for formatting and parsing dates in a
 * language-independent manner. It allows for formatting (millis -> text),
 * parsing (text -> millis), and normalization. Formats/Parses a date or time,
 * which is the standard milliseconds since 24:00 GMT, Jan 1, 1970.
 * <P>
 * Clients are encouraged to create a date-time formatter using DateFormat::getInstance(),
 * getDateInstance(), getDateInstance(), or getDateTimeInstance() rather than
 * explicitly constructing an instance of SimpleDateFormat.  This way, the client
 * is guaranteed to get an appropriate formatting pattern for whatever locale the
 * program is running in.  However, if the client needs something more unusual than
 * the default patterns in the locales, he can construct a SimpleDateFormat directly
 * and give it an appropriate pattern (or use one of the factory methods on DateFormat
 * and modify the pattern after the fact with toPattern() and applyPattern().
 *
 * <p><strong>Date and Time Patterns:</strong></p>
 *
 * <p>Date and time formats are specified by <em>date and time pattern</em> strings.
 * Within date and time pattern strings, all unquoted ASCII letters [A-Za-z] are reserved
 * as pattern letters representing calendar fields. <code>SimpleDateFormat</code> supports
 * the date and time formatting algorithm and pattern letters defined by
 * <a href="http://www.unicode.org/reports/tr35/tr35-dates.html#Date_Field_Symbol_Table">UTS#35
 * Unicode Locale Data Markup Language (LDML)</a> and further documented for ICU in the
 * <a href="https://sites.google.com/site/icuprojectuserguide/formatparse/datetime?pli=1#TOC-Date-Field-Symbol-Table">ICU
 * User Guide</a>. The following pattern letters are currently available (note that the actual
 * values depend on CLDR and may change from the examples shown here):</p>

 * Code Sample:
 * <pre>
 * \code
 *     UErrorCode success = U_ZERO_ERROR;
 *     SimpleTimeZone* pdt = new SimpleTimeZone(-8 * 60 * 60 * 1000, "PST");
 *     pdt->setStartRule( Calendar::APRIL, 1, Calendar::SUNDAY, 2*60*60*1000);
 *     pdt->setEndRule( Calendar::OCTOBER, -1, Calendar::SUNDAY, 2*60*60*1000);
 *
 *     // Format the current time.
 *     SimpleDateFormat* formatter
 *         = new SimpleDateFormat ("yyyy.MM.dd G 'at' hh:mm:ss a zzz", success );
 *     GregorianCalendar cal(success);
 *     UDate currentTime_1 = cal.getTime(success);
 *     FieldPosition fp(FieldPosition::DONT_CARE);
 *     UnicodeString dateString;
 *     formatter->format( currentTime_1, dateString, fp );
 *     cout << "result: " << dateString << endl;
 *
 *     // Parse the previous string back into a Date.
 *     ParsePosition pp(0);
 *     UDate currentTime_2 = formatter->parse(dateString, pp );
 * \endcode
 * </pre>
 * In the above example, the time value "currentTime_2" obtained from parsing
 * will be equal to currentTime_1. However, they may not be equal if the am/pm
 * marker 'a' is left out from the format pattern while the "hour in am/pm"
 * pattern symbol is used. This information loss can happen when formatting the
 * time in PM.
 *
 * <p>
 * When parsing a date string using the abbreviated year pattern ("y" or "yy"),
 * SimpleDateFormat must interpret the abbreviated year
 * relative to some century.  It does this by adjusting dates to be
 * within 80 years before and 20 years after the time the SimpleDateFormat
 * instance is created. For example, using a pattern of "MM/dd/yy" and a
 * SimpleDateFormat instance created on Jan 1, 1997,  the string
 * "01/11/12" would be interpreted as Jan 11, 2012 while the string "05/04/64"
 * would be interpreted as May 4, 1964.
 * During parsing, only strings consisting of exactly two digits, as defined by
 * <code>Unicode::isDigit()</code>, will be parsed into the default century.
 * Any other numeric string, such as a one digit string, a three or more digit
 * string, or a two digit string that isn't all digits (for example, "-1"), is
 * interpreted literally.  So "01/02/3" or "01/02/003" are parsed (for the
 * Gregorian calendar), using the same pattern, as Jan 2, 3 AD.  Likewise (but
 * only in lenient parse mode, the default) "01/02/-3" is parsed as Jan 2, 4 BC.
 *
 * <p>
 * If the year pattern has more than two 'y' characters, the year is
 * interpreted literally, regardless of the number of digits.  So using the
 * pattern "MM/dd/yyyy", "01/11/12" parses to Jan 11, 12 A.D.
 *
 * <p>
 * When numeric fields abut one another directly, with no intervening delimiter
 * characters, they constitute a run of abutting numeric fields.  Such runs are
 * parsed specially.  For example, the format "HHmmss" parses the input text
 * "123456" to 12:34:56, parses the input text "12345" to 1:23:45, and fails to
 * parse "1234".  In other words, the leftmost field of the run is flexible,
 * while the others keep a fixed width.  If the parse fails anywhere in the run,
 * then the leftmost field is shortened by one character, and the entire run is
 * parsed again. This is repeated until either the parse succeeds or the
 * leftmost field is one character in length.  If the parse still fails at that
 * point, the parse of the run fails.
 *
 * <P>
 * For time zones that have no names, SimpleDateFormat uses strings GMT+hours:minutes or
 * GMT-hours:minutes.
 * <P>
 * The calendar defines what is the first day of the week, the first week of the
 * year, whether hours are zero based or not (0 vs 12 or 24), and the timezone.
 * There is one common number format to handle all the numbers; the digit count
 * is handled programmatically according to the pattern.
 *
 * <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.
