class MessageFormat;

/**
 * ChoiceFormat converts between ranges of numeric values
 * and string names for those ranges. A <code>ChoiceFormat</code> splits
 * the real number line <code>-Inf</code> to <code>+Inf</code> into two
 * or more contiguous ranges. Each range is mapped to a
 * string. <code>ChoiceFormat</code> is generally used in a
 * <code>MessageFormat</code> for displaying grammatically correct
 * plurals such as &quot;There are 2 files.&quot;</p>
 * 
 * <p>There are two methods of defining a <code>ChoiceFormat</code>; both
 * are equivalent.  The first is by using a string pattern. This is the
 * preferred method in most cases.  The second method is through direct
 * specification of the arrays that make up the
 * <code>ChoiceFormat</code>.</p>
 * 
 * <p><strong>Patterns</strong></p>
 * 
 * <p>In most cases, the preferred way to define a
 * <code>ChoiceFormat</code> is with a pattern. Here is an example of a
 * <code>ChoiceFormat</code> pattern:</p>
 *
 * \htmlonly<pre>    0&#x2264;are no files|1&#x2264;is one file|1&lt;are many files</pre>\endhtmlonly
 * 
 * <p>or equivalently,</p>
 * 
 * \htmlonly<pre>    0#are no files|1#is one file|1&lt;are many files</pre>\endhtmlonly
 * 
 * <p>The pattern consists of a number or <em>range specifiers</em>
 * separated by vertical bars '|' (U+007C). There is no
 * vertical bar after the last range.  Each range specifier is of the
 * form:</p>
 *
 * \htmlonly<blockquote><em>Number Separator String</em></blockquote>\endhtmlonly
 * 
 * <p><em>Number</em> is a floating point number that can be parsed by a
 * default <code>NumberFormat</code> for the US locale. It gives the
 * lower limit of this range. The lower limit is either inclusive or
 * exclusive, depending on the <em>separator</em>. The upper limit is
 * given by the lower limit of the next range.  The Unicode infinity
 * sign \htmlonly&#x221E \endhtmlonly (U+221E) is recognized for positive infinity. It may be preceded by
 * '-' (U+002D) to indicate negative infinity.</p>
 * 
 * <p><em>String</em> is the format string for this range, with special
 * characters enclosed in single quotes (<code>'The #
 * sign'</code>). Single quotes themselves are indicated by two single
 * quotes in a row (<code>'o''clock'</code>).</p>
 * 
 * <p><em>Separator</em> is one of the following single characters:
 * 
 * <ul>
 *   <li>\htmlonly'&#x2264;' \endhtmlonly (U+2264) or '#' (U+0023)
 *   indicates that the lower limit given by <em>Number</em> is
 *   inclusive.  (The two characters are equivalent to ChoiceFormat.)
 *   This means that the limit value <em>Number</em> belongs to this
 *   range.  Another way of saying this is that the corresponding
 *   closure is <code>FALSE</code>.</li>
 *
 *   <li>'<' (U+003C) indicates that the lower limit given by
 *   <em>Number</em> is exclusive.  This means that the value
 *   <em>Number</em> belongs to the prior range.</li> Another way of
 *   saying this is that the corresponding closure is
 *   <code>TRUE</code>.
 * </ul>
 * 
 * <p>See below for more information about closures.</p>
 * 
 * <p><strong>Arrays</strong></p>
 * 
 * <p>A <code>ChoiceFormat</code> defining <code>n</code> intervals
 * (<code>n</code> &gt;= 2) is specified by three arrays of
 * <code>n</code> items:
 * 
 * <ul>
 *   <li><code>double limits[]</code> gives the start of each
 *     interval. This must be a non-decreasing list of values, none of
 *     which may be <code>NaN</code>.</li>
 *   <li><code>UBool closures[]</code> determines whether each limit
 *     value is contained in the interval below it or in the interval
 *     above it. If <code>closures[i]</code> is <code>FALSE</code>, then
 *     <code>limits[i]</code> is a member of interval
 *     <code>i</code>. Otherwise it is a member of interval
 *     <code>i+1</code>. If no closures array is specified, this is
 *     equivalent to having all closures be <code>FALSE</code>. Closures
 *     allow one to specify half-open, open, or closed intervals.</li>
 *   <li><code>UnicodeString formats[]</code> gives the string label
 *     associated with each interval.</li>
 * </ul>
 * 
 * <p><strong>Formatting and Parsing</strong></p>
 * 
 * <p>During formatting, a number is converted to a
 * string. <code>ChoiceFormat</code> accomplishes this by mapping the
 * number to an interval using the following rule. Given a number
 * <code>X</code> and and index value <code>j</code> in the range
 * <code>0..n-1</code>, where <code>n</code> is the number of ranges:</p>
 * 
 * \htmlonly<blockquote>\endhtmlonly<code>X</code> matches <code>j</code> if and only if
 * <code>limit[j] &lt;= X &lt; limit[j+1]</code>
 * \htmlonly</blockquote>\endhtmlonly
 * 
 * <p>(This assumes that all closures are <code>FALSE</code>.  If some
 * closures are <code>TRUE</code> then the relations must be changed to
 * <code>&lt;=</code> or <code>&lt;</code> as appropriate.) If there is
 * no match, then either the first or last index is used, depending on
 * whether the number is too low or too high. Once a number is mapped to
 * an interval <code>j</code>, the string <code>formats[j]</code> is
 * output.</p>
 * 
 * <p>During parsing, a string is converted to a
 * number. <code>ChoiceFormat</code> finds the element
 * <code>formats[j]</code> equal to the string, and returns
 * <code>limits[j]</code> as the parsed value.</p>
 * 
 * <p><strong>Notes</strong></p>
 * 
 * <p>The first limit value does not define a range boundary. For
 * example, in the pattern \htmlonly&quot;<code>1.0#a|2.0#b</code>&quot;\endhtmlonly, the
 * intervals are [-Inf, 2.0) and [2.0, +Inf].  It appears that the first
 * interval should be [1.0, 2.0).  However, since all values that are too
 * small are mapped to range zero, the first interval is effectively
 * [-Inf, 2.0).  However, the first limit value <em>is</em> used during
 * formatting. In this example, <code>parse(&quot;a&quot;)</code> returns
 * 1.0.</p>
 * 
 * <p>There are no gaps between intervals and the entire number line is
 * covered.  A <code>ChoiceFormat</code> maps <em>all</em> possible
 * double values to a finite set of intervals.</p>
 * 
 * <p>The non-number <code>NaN</code> is mapped to interval zero during
 * formatting.</p>
 * 
 * <p><strong>Examples</strong></p>
 * 
 * <p>Here is an example of two arrays that map the number
 * <code>1..7</code> to the English day of the week abbreviations
 * <code>Sun..Sat</code>. No closures array is given; this is the same as
 * specifying all closures to be <code>FALSE</code>.</p>
 * 
 * <pre>    {1,2,3,4,5,6,7},
 *     {&quot;Sun&quot;,&quot;Mon&quot;,&quot;Tue&quot;,&quot;Wed&quot;,&quot;Thur&quot;,&quot;Fri&quot;,&quot;Sat&quot;}</pre>
 * 
 * <p>Here is an example that maps the ranges [-Inf, 1), [1, 1], and (1,
 * +Inf] to three strings. That is, the number line is split into three
 * ranges: x &lt; 1.0, x = 1.0, and x &gt; 1.0.</p>
 * 
 * <pre>    {0, 1, 1},
 *     {FALSE, FALSE, TRUE},
 *     {&quot;no files&quot;, &quot;one file&quot;, &quot;many files&quot;}</pre>
 * 
 * <p>Here is a simple example that shows formatting and parsing: </p>
 * 
 * \code
 *   #include <unicode/choicfmt.h>
 *   #include <unicode/unistr.h>
 *   #include <iostream.h>
 *   
 *   int main(int argc, char *argv[]) {
 *       double limits[] = {1,2,3,4,5,6,7};
 *       UnicodeString monthNames[] = {
 *           "Sun","Mon","Tue","Wed","Thu","Fri","Sat"};
 *       ChoiceFormat fmt(limits, monthNames, 7);
 *       UnicodeString str;
 *       char buf[256];
 *       for (double x = 1.0; x <= 8.0; x += 1.0) {
 *           fmt.format(x, str);
 *           str.extract(0, str.length(), buf, 256, "");
 *           str.truncate(0);
 *           cout << x << " -> "
 *                << buf << endl;
 *       }
 *       cout << endl;
 *       return 0;
 *   }
 * \endcode
 * 
 * <p>Here is a more complex example using a <code>ChoiceFormat</code>
 * constructed from a pattern together with a
 * <code>MessageFormat</code>.</p>
 * 
 * \code
 *   #include <unicode/choicfmt.h>
 *   #include <unicode/msgfmt.h>
 *   #include <unicode/unistr.h>
 *   #include <iostream.h>
 * 
 *   int main(int argc, char *argv[]) {
 *       UErrorCode status = U_ZERO_ERROR;
 *       double filelimits[] = {0,1,2};
 *       UnicodeString filepart[] =
 *           {"are no files","is one file","are {0} files"};
 *       ChoiceFormat* fileform = new ChoiceFormat(filelimits, filepart, 3 );
 *       Format* testFormats[] =
 *           {fileform, NULL, NumberFormat::createInstance(status)};
 *       MessageFormat pattform("There {0} on {1}", status );
 *       pattform.adoptFormats(testFormats, 3);
 *       Formattable testArgs[] = {0L, "Disk A"};
 *       FieldPosition fp(0);
 *       UnicodeString str;
 *       char buf[256];
 *       for (int32_t i = 0; i < 4; ++i) {
 *           Formattable fInt(i);
 *           testArgs[0] = fInt;
 *           pattform.format(testArgs, 2, str, fp, status );
 *           str.extract(0, str.length(), buf, "");
 *           str.truncate(0);
 *           cout << "Output for i=" << i << " : " << buf << endl;
 *       }
 *       cout << endl;
 *       return 0;
 *   }
 * \endcode
 *
 * <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.
