* Modification History:
*
*   Date        Name        Description
*   2/5/97      aliu        Added scanForLocaleInFile.  Added
*                           constructor which attempts to read resource bundle
*                           from a specific file, without searching other files.
*   2/11/97     aliu        Added UErrorCode return values to constructors.  Fixed
*                           infinite loops in scanForFile and scanForLocale.
*                           Modified getRawResourceData to not delete storage
*                           in localeData and resourceData which it doesn't own.
*                           Added Mac compatibility #ifdefs for tellp() and
*                           ios::nocreate.
*   2/18/97     helena      Updated with 100% documentation coverage.
*   3/13/97     aliu        Rewrote to load in entire resource bundle and store
*                           it as a Hashtable of ResourceBundleData objects.
*                           Added state table to govern parsing of files.
*                           Modified to load locale index out of new file
*                           distinct from default.txt.
*   3/25/97     aliu        Modified to support 2-d arrays, needed for timezone
*                           data. Added support for custom file suffixes.  Again,
*                           needed to support timezone data.
*   4/7/97      aliu        Cleaned up.
* 03/02/99      stephen     Removed dependency on FILE*.
* 03/29/99      helena      Merged Bertrand and Stephen's changes.
* 06/11/99      stephen     Removed parsing of .txt files.
*                           Reworked to use new binary format.
*                           Cleaned up.
* 06/14/99      stephen     Removed methods taking a filename suffix.
* 11/09/99      weiv        Added getLocale(), fRealLocale, removed fRealLocaleID

U_NAMESPACE_BEGIN

/**
 * A class representing a collection of resource information pertaining to a given
 * locale. A resource bundle provides a way of accessing locale- specfic information in
 * a data file. You create a resource bundle that manages the resources for a given
 * locale and then ask it for individual resources.
 * <P>
 * Resource bundles in ICU4C are currently defined using text files which conform to the following
 * <a href="http://source.icu-project.org/repos/icu/icuhtml/trunk/design/bnf_rb.txt">BNF definition</a>.
 * More on resource bundle concepts and syntax can be found in the
 * <a href="http://icu-project.org/userguide/ResourceManagement.html">Users Guide</a>.
 * <P>
 *
 * The ResourceBundle class is not suitable for subclassing.

     *                      or equivalent.  Typically, packageName will refer to a (.dat) file, or to
     *                      a package registered with udata_setAppData(). Using a full file or directory
     *                      pathname for packageName is deprecated.
     * @param locale  This is the locale this resource bundle is for. To get resources
     *                for the French locale, for example, you would create a
     *                ResourceBundle passing Locale::FRENCH for the "locale" parameter,
     *                and all subsequent calls to that resource bundle will return
     *                resources that pertain to the French locale. If the caller doesn't
     *                pass a locale parameter, the default locale for the system (as
     *                returned by Locale::getDefault()) will be used.
     * @param err     The Error Code.
     * The UErrorCode& err parameter is used to return status information to the user. To
     * check whether the construction succeeded or not, you should check the value of
     * U_SUCCESS(err). If you wish more detailed information, you can check for
     * informational error results which still indicate success. U_USING_FALLBACK_WARNING
     * indicates that a fall back locale was used. For example, 'de_CH' was requested,
     * but nothing was found there, so 'de' was used. U_USING_DEFAULT_WARNING indicates that
     * the default locale data was used; neither the requested locale nor any of its
     * fall back locales could be found.
