/**
 
* The {@code Character} class wraps a value of the primitive
 
* type {@code char} in an object. An object of class
 
* {@code Character} contains a single field whose type is
 
* {@code char}.
 
* <p>
 
* In addition, this class provides a large number of static methods for
 
* determining a character's category (lowercase letter, digit, etc.)
 
* and for converting characters from uppercase to lowercase and vice
 
* versa.
 
*
 
* <h3><a id="conformance">Unicode Conformance</a></h3>
 
* <p>
 
* The fields and methods of class {@code Character} are defined in terms
 
* of character information from the Unicode Standard, specifically the
 
* <i>UnicodeData</i> file that is part of the Unicode Character Database.
 
* This file specifies properties including name and category for every
 
* assigned Unicode code point or character range. The file is available
 
* from the Unicode Consortium at
 
*<a href="http://www.unicode.org">http://www.unicode.org</a>.
 
* <p>
 
* The Java SE 8 Platform uses character information from version 6.2
 
* of the Unicode Standard, with two extensions. First, the Java SE 8 Platform
 
* allows an implementation of class {@code Character} to use the Japanese Era
 
* code point, {@code U+32FF}, from the first version of the Unicode Standard
 
* after 6.2 that assigns the code point. Second, in recognition of the fact
 
* that new currencies appear frequently, the Java SE 8 Platform allows an
 
* implementation of class {@code Character} to use the Currency Symbols
 
* block from version 10.0 of the Unicode Standard. Consequently, the
 
* behavior of fields and methods of class {@code Character} may vary across
 
* implementations of the Java SE 8 Platform when processing the aforementioned
 
* code points ( outside of version 6.2 ), except for the following methods
 
* that define Java identifiers:
 
* {@link #isJavaIdentifierStart(int)}, {@link #isJavaIdentifierStart(char)},
 
* {@link #isJavaIdentifierPart(int)}, and {@link #isJavaIdentifierPart(char)}.
 
* Code points in Java identifiers must be drawn from version 6.2 of
 
* the Unicode Standard.
 
*
 
* <h3><a name="unicode">Unicode Character Representations</a></h3>
 
*
 
* <p>The {@code char} data type (and therefore the value that a
 
* {@code Character} object encapsulates) are based on the
 
* original Unicode specification, which defined characters as
 
* fixed-width 16-bit entities. The Unicode Standard has since been
 
* changed to allow for characters whose representation requires more
 
* than 16 bits.
  
The range of legal <em>code point</em>s is now
 
* U+0000 to U+10FFFF, known as <em>Unicode scalar value</em>.
 
* (Refer to the <a
 
* href=" http://www.unicode.org/reports/tr27/#notation"><i>
 
* definition</i></a> of the U+<i>n</i> notation in the Unicode
 
* Standard.)
 
*
 
* <p><a name="BMP">The set of characters from U+0000 to U+FFFF</a> is
 
* sometimes referred to as the <em>Basic Multilingual Plane (BMP)</em>.
 
* <a name="supplementary">Characters</a> whose code points are greater
 
* than U+FFFF are called <em>supplementary character</em>s.
  
The Java
 
* platform uses the UTF-16 representation in {@code char} arrays and
 
* in the {@code String} and {@code StringBuffer} classes. In
 
* this representation, supplementary characters are represented as a pair
 
* of {@code char} values, the first from the <em>high-surrogates</em>
 
* range, (&#92;uD800-&#92;uDBFF), the second from the
 
* <em>low-surrogates</em> range (&#92;uDC00-&#92;uDFFF).
 
*
 
* <p>A {@code char} value, therefore, represents Basic
 
* Multilingual Plane (BMP) code points, including the surrogate
 
* code points, or code units of the UTF-16 encoding. An
 
* {@code int} value represents all Unicode code points,
 
* including supplementary code points. The lower (least significant)
 
* 21 bits of {@code int} are used to represent Unicode code
 
* points and the upper (most significant) 11 bits must be zero.
 
* Unless otherwise specified, the behavior with respect to
 
* supplementary characters and surrogate {@code char} values is
 
* as follows:
 
*
 
* <ul>
 
* <li>The methods that only accept a {@code char} value cannot support
 
* supplementary characters. They treat {@code char} values from the
 
* surrogate ranges as undefined characters. For example,
 
* {@code Character.isLetter('\u005CuD840')} returns {@code false}, even though
 
* this specific value if followed by any low-surrogate value in a string
 
* would represent a letter.
 
*
 
* <li>The methods that accept an {@code int} value support all
 
* Unicode characters, including supplementary characters. For
 
* example, {@code Character.isLetter(0x2F81A)} returns
 
* {@code true} because the code point value represents a letter
 
* (a CJK ideograph).
 
* </ul>
 
*
 
* <p>In the Java SE API documentation, <em>Unicode code point</em> is
 
* used for character values in the range between U+0000 and U+10FFFF,
 
* and <em>Unicode code unit</em> is used for 16-bit
 
* {@code char} values that are code units of the <em>UTF-16</em>
 
* encoding. For more information on Unicode terminology, refer to the
 
*<a href="http://www.unicode.org/glossary/">Unicode Glossary</a>.

* This method accepts block names in the following forms:
         
* <ol>
         
* <li> Canonical block names as defined by the Unicode Standard.
         
* For example, the standard defines a "Basic Latin" block. Therefore, this
         
* method accepts "Basic Latin" as a valid block name. The documentation of
         
* each UnicodeBlock provides the canonical name.
         
* <li>Canonical block names with all spaces removed. For example, "BasicLatin"
         
* is a valid block name for the "Basic Latin" block.
         
* <li>The text representation of each constant UnicodeBlock identifier.
         
* For example, this method will return the {@link #BASIC_LATIN} block if
         
* provided with the "BASIC_LATIN" name. This form replaces all spaces and
         
* hyphens in the canonical name with underscores.
         
* </ol>
         
* Finally, character case is ignored for all of the valid block name forms.
         
* For example, "BASIC_LATIN" and "basic_latin" are both valid block names.
         
* The en_US locale's case mapping rules are used to provide case-insensitive
         
* string comparisons for block name validation.
         
* <p>
