* \section API API Reference Usage
*
* <h3>C++ Programmers:</h3>
* <p>Use <a href="hierarchy.html">Class Hierarchy</a> or <a href="classes.html"> Alphabetical List </a>
* or <a href="annotated.html"> Compound List</a>
* to find the class you are interested in. For example, to find BreakIterator,
* you can go to the <a href="classes.html"> Alphabetical List</a>, then click on
* "BreakIterator". Once you are at the class, you will find an inheritance
* chart, a list of the public members, a detailed description of the class,
* then detailed member descriptions.</p>
*
* <h3>C Programmers:</h3>
* <p>Use <a href="#Module">Module List</a> or <a href="globals.html">File Members</a>
* to find a list of all the functions and constants.
* For example, to find BreakIterator functions you would click on
* <a href="files.html"> File List</a>,
* then find "ubrk.h" and click on it. You will find descriptions of Defines,
* Typedefs, Enumerations, and Functions, with detailed descriptions below.
* If you want to find a specific function, such as ubrk_next(), then click
* first on <a href="globals.html"> File Members</a>, then use your browser
* Find dialog to search for "ubrk_next()".</p>
