* Locale class is a core representation of a single locale.
* A locale is a data object representing a combination of language, script,
* region, variant and a set of regional extension preferences that may further
* specify particular user choices like calendar, numbering system, etc.
* A locale can be expressed as a language tag string, like a simple "fr" for
* French, or a more specific "sr-Cyrl-RS-u-hc-h12" for Serbian in Russia with a
* Cyrylic script, and hour cycle selected to be `h12`.
* The format of the language tag follows BCP47 standard and implements a subset
* of it. In the future we expect to extend this class to cover more subtags and
* extensions.
* The aim of this class it aid in validation, parsing and canonicalization of
* the string.
* It allows the user to input any well-formed BCP47 language tag and operate
* on its subtags in a canonicalized form.
* It should be used for all operations on language tags, and together with
* LocaleService::NegotiateLanguages for language negotiation.
* Example:
* MozLocale loc = MozLocale("de-at");
* ASSERT_TRUE(loc.GetLanguage().Equals("de"));
* ASSERT_TRUE(loc.GetScript().IsEmpty());
* ASSERT_TRUE(loc.GetRegion().Equals("AT")); // canonicalized to upper case
class MozLocale {
* The constructor expects the input to be a well-formed BCP47-style locale
* string.
* Two operations are performed on the well-formed language tags:
* * Case normalization to conform with BCP47 (e.g. "eN-uS" -> "en-US")
* * Underscore delimiters replaced with dashed (e.g. "en_US" -> "en-US")
* If the input language tag string is not well-formed, the Locale will be
* created with its flag `mWellFormed` set to false which will make the Locale
* never match.

* Returns a canonicalized language tag string of the locale.
const nsCString AsString() const;
* Compares two locales optionally treating one or both of
* the locales as a range.
* In case one of the locales is treated as a range, its
* empty fields are considered to match all possible
* values of the same field on the other locale.
* Example:
* Locale("en").Matches(Locale("en-US"), false, false) // false
* Locale("en").Matches(Locale("en-US"), true, false) // true
* The latter returns true because the region field on the "en"
* locale is being treated as a range and matches any region field
* value including "US" of the other locale.
bool Matches(const MozLocale& aOther, bool aThisRange,
bool aOtherRange) const;
* This operation uses CLDR data to build a more specific version
* of a generic locale.
* Example:
* Locale("en").Maximize().AsString(); // "en-Latn-US"
bool Maximize();
* Clears the variants field of the Locale object.
void ClearVariants();
* Clears the region field of the Locale object.
void ClearRegion();
* Marks the locale as invalid which in turns makes
* it to be skipped by most LocaleService operations.
void Invalidate() { mIsWellFormed = false; }
* Compares two locales expecting all fields to match each other.
