SexagesimalFormatter in Java

Sexagesimal is a measurement system in which an angle is measured in degrees, minutes, and seconds. In Java, SexagesimalFormatter is a formatter class that belongs to herschel.share.fltdyn.math package. It extends the Object class. It is used to parse and format sexagesimal values. The base-60 values are known as sexagesimal values. The motive of the class is to represent angles used in time in form of Hours-Minutes-Seconds (HMS) or Degrees-Minutes-Seconds (DMS). Besides this, we can also use it for time.

The SexagesimalFormatter class defines the following two constructors:

Constructors Description
SexagesimalFormatter(SexagesimalFormatter.Mode mode) It creates a SexagesimalFormatter.
SexagesimalFormatter(String separators, boolean hours, boolean nonNegative) It creates a custom SexagesimalFormatter.
