It provides the ability to convert RFC 822 and RFC 3339 date/time formatted strings into Date variables. It provides encoding and decoding methods for Base64, Hex, URL-encoding, and quoted-printable.
It provides Unicode language detection allowing an application to determine what languages (Chinese, Japanese, Korean, etc.) are present in a string.
