 * \brief  C API: Locale 
 *
 * <h2> ULoc C API for Locale </h2>
 * A <code>Locale</code> represents a specific geographical, political,
 * or cultural region. An operation that requires a <code>Locale</code> to perform
 * its task is called <em>locale-sensitive</em> and uses the <code>Locale</code>
 * to tailor information for the user. For example, displaying a number
 * is a locale-sensitive operation--the number should be formatted
 * according to the customs/conventions of the user's native country,
 * region, or culture.  In the C APIs, a locales is simply a const char string.
 *
 * <P>
 * You create a <code>Locale</code> with one of the three options listed below.
 * Each of the component is separated by '_' in the locale string.
 * \htmlonly<blockquote>\endhtmlonly
 * <pre>
 * \code
 *       newLanguage
 * 
 *       newLanguage + newCountry
 * 
 *       newLanguage + newCountry + newVariant
 * \endcode
 * </pre>
 * \htmlonly</blockquote>\endhtmlonly
 * The first option is a valid <STRONG>ISO
 * Language Code.</STRONG> These codes are the lower-case two-letter
 * codes as defined by ISO-639.
 * You can find a full list of these codes at a number of sites, such as:
 * <BR><a href ="http://www.ics.uci.edu/pub/ietf/http/related/iso639.txt">
 * http://www.ics.uci.edu/pub/ietf/http/related/iso639.txt</a>
 *
 * <P>
 * The second option includes an additonal <STRONG>ISO Country
 * Code.</STRONG> These codes are the upper-case two-letter codes
 * as defined by ISO-3166.
 * You can find a full list of these codes at a number of sites, such as:
 * <BR><a href="http://www.chemie.fu-berlin.de/diverse/doc/ISO_3166.html">
 * http://www.chemie.fu-berlin.de/diverse/doc/ISO_3166.html</a>
 *
 * <P>
 * The third option requires another additonal information--the 
 * <STRONG>Variant.</STRONG>
 * The Variant codes are vendor and browser-specific.
 * For example, use WIN for Windows, MAC for Macintosh, and POSIX for POSIX.
 * Where there are two variants, separate them with an underscore, and
 * put the most important one first. For
 * example, a Traditional Spanish collation might be referenced, with
 * "ES", "ES", "Traditional_WIN".
 *
 * <P>
 * Because a <code>Locale</code> is just an identifier for a region,
 * no validity check is performed when you specify a <code>Locale</code>.
 * If you want to see whether particular resources are available for the
 * <code>Locale</code> you asked for, you must query those resources. For
 * example, ask the <code>UNumberFormat</code> for the locales it supports
 * using its <code>getAvailable</code> method.
 * <BR><STRONG>Note:</STRONG> When you ask for a resource for a particular
 * locale, you get back the best available match, not necessarily
 * precisely what you asked for. For more information, look at
 * <code>UResourceBundle</code>.
 *
 * <P>
 * The <code>Locale</code> provides a number of convenient constants
 * that you can use to specify the commonly used
 * locales. For example, the following refers to a locale
 * for the United States:
 * \htmlonly<blockquote>\endhtmlonly
 * <pre>
 * \code
 *       ULOC_US
 * \endcode
 * </pre>
 * \htmlonly</blockquote>\endhtmlonly
 *
 * <P>
 * Once you've specified a locale you can query it for information about
 * itself. Use <code>uloc_getCountry</code> to get the ISO Country Code and
 * <code>uloc_getLanguage</code> to get the ISO Language Code. You can
 * use <code>uloc_getDisplayCountry</code> to get the
 * name of the country suitable for displaying to the user. Similarly,
 * you can use <code>uloc_getDisplayLanguage</code> to get the name of
 * the language suitable for displaying to the user. Interestingly,
 * the <code>uloc_getDisplayXXX</code> methods are themselves locale-sensitive
 * and have two versions: one that uses the default locale and one
 * that takes a locale as an argument and displays the name or country in
 * a language appropriate to that locale.
 *
 * <P>
 * The ICU provides a number of services that perform locale-sensitive
 * operations. For example, the <code>unum_xxx</code> functions format
 * numbers, currency, or percentages in a locale-sensitive manner. 
 * </P>
 * \htmlonly<blockquote>\endhtmlonly
 * <pre>
 * \code
 *     UErrorCode success = U_ZERO_ERROR;
 *     UNumberFormat *nf;
 *     const char* myLocale = "fr_FR";
 * 
 *     nf = unum_open( UNUM_DEFAULT, NULL, success );          
 *     unum_close(nf);
 *     nf = unum_open( UNUM_CURRENCY, NULL, success );
 *     unum_close(nf);
 *     nf = unum_open( UNUM_PERCENT, NULL, success );   
 *     unum_close(nf);
 * \endcode
 * </pre>
 * \htmlonly</blockquote>\endhtmlonly
 * Each of these methods has two variants; one with an explicit locale
 * and one without; the latter using the default locale.
 * \htmlonly<blockquote>\endhtmlonly
 * <pre>
 * \code 
 * 
 *     nf = unum_open( UNUM_DEFAULT, myLocale, success );          
 *     unum_close(nf);
 *     nf = unum_open( UNUM_CURRENCY, myLocale, success );
 *     unum_close(nf);
 *     nf = unum_open( UNUM_PERCENT, myLocale, success );   
 *     unum_close(nf);
 * \endcode
 * </pre>
 * \htmlonly</blockquote>\endhtmlonly
 * A <code>Locale</code> is the mechanism for identifying the kind of services
 * (<code>UNumberFormat</code>) that you would like to get. The locale is
 * <STRONG>just</STRONG> a mechanism for identifying these services.
 *
 * <P>
 * Each international serivce that performs locale-sensitive operations 
 * allows you
 * to get all the available objects of that type. You can sift
 * through these objects by language, country, or variant,
 * and use the display names to present a menu to the user.
 * For example, you can create a menu of all the collation objects
 * suitable for a given language. Such classes implement these
 * three class methods:
 * \htmlonly<blockquote>\endhtmlonly
 * <pre>
 * \code
 *       const char* uloc_getAvailable(int32_t index);
 *       int32_t uloc_countAvailable();
 *       int32_t
 *       uloc_getDisplayName(const char* localeID,
 *                 const char* inLocaleID, 
 *                 UChar* result,
 *                 int32_t maxResultSize,
 *                  UErrorCode* err);
 * 
 * \endcode
 * </pre>
 * \htmlonly</blockquote>\endhtmlonly
 * <P>
 * Concerning POSIX/RFC1766 Locale IDs, 
 *  the getLanguage/getCountry/getVariant/getName functions do understand
 * the POSIX type form of  language_COUNTRY.ENCODING\@VARIANT
 * and if there is not an ICU-stype variant, uloc_getVariant() for example
 * will return the one listed after the \@at sign. As well, the hyphen
 * "-" is recognized as a country/variant separator similarly to RFC1766.
 * So for example, "en-us" will be interpreted as en_US.  
 * As a result, uloc_getName() is far from a no-op, and will have the
 * effect of converting POSIX/RFC1766 IDs into ICU form, although it does
 * NOT map any of the actual codes (i.e. russian->ru) in any way.
 * Applications should call uloc_getName() at the point where a locale ID
 * is coming from an external source (user entry, OS, web browser)
 * and pass the resulting string to other ICU functions.  For example,
 * don't use de-de\@EURO as an argument to resourcebundle.
