[ locale ]


The [locale] method creates a locale object which is used to provide the ability to format the output of various data in the manner specified by the locale.

The method requires one parameter which is the 2-letter code of the language of the locale (these codes follow the ISO-639 standard). Additionally [locale] accepts optional parameters which are, in order, the 2-letter country code (according to the ISO-3166 standard) and the variant code which allows further refinement to the locale.

     myDate = date )
