29.10 java.text.DecimalFormatSymbols (JDK 1.1)

This class defines the various characters and strings, such as the decimal point, percent sign, and thousands separator, used by DecimalFormat when formatting numbers. You do not typically use this class directly unless you are formatting dates for an unsupported locale or in some highly customized way.

public final class DecimalFormatSymbols extends Object implements Cloneable, Serializable {
    // Public Constructors
            public DecimalFormatSymbols();
            public DecimalFormatSymbols(Locale locale);
    // Public Instance Methods
            public Object clone();  // Overrides Object
            public boolean equals(Object obj);  // Overrides Object
            public char getDecimalSeparator();
            public char getDigit();
            public char getGroupingSeparator();
            public String getInfinity();
            public char getMinusSign();
            public String getNaN();

            public char getPerMill();
            public char getPercent();

            public void setDecimalSeparator(char decimalSeparator);
            public void setDigit(char digit);
            public void setGroupingSeparator(char groupingSeparator);
            public void setInfinity(String infinity);
            public void setMinusSign(char minusSign);
            public void setNaN(String NaN);
