Abstract

Disclosed is a program which can provide a data processing system with consistent pattern matching and formatting routines on National Language Support country-dependent objects. This program can be used in a multi-lingual, multi-national, multi-platform environment by a plurality of users. The disclosed program provides an interface that allows development of a data processing system by programmers having little or no knowledge of the actual languages, nations, or computer plat forms from which the processed objects that need pattern matching and formatting will be sent, or in which the data processing system will execute.

Object Oriented National Language Support for Format and Pattern Matching Programming Tools

       Disclosed is a program which can provide a data
processing system with consistent pattern matching and formatting
routines on National Language Support country-dependent objects.
This program can be used in a multi-lingual, multi-national,
multi-platform environment by a plurality of users.  The disclosed
program provides an interface that allows development of a data
processing system by programmers having little or no knowledge of the
actual languages, nations, or computer plat forms from which the
processed objects that need pattern matching and formatting will be
sent, or in which the data processing system will execute.

      A processing system that is supported by National Language
String functions and has the following requirements can utilize the
National Language Support for Pattern Matching and Formatting:
o   pattern matching and formatting for objects such as date, time,
integer, and real in the form of National Language String
definitions.  As objects are validated for correctness the pattern
matching algorithms will syntactically determine whether the given
object (date, time, integer, or real) is correct.
o   rules governing a syntactic parser used in pattern matching for
objects such as date, time, integer, and real.  This includes
extensions to real objects  such as currency objects. This
demonstrates the flexibility of pattern matching on virtually a...
