int main()
{

   // Gets a NumberFormatInfo associated with the en-US culture.
   CultureInfo^ MyCI = gcnew CultureInfo( "en-US",false );
   NumberFormatInfo^ nfi = MyCI->NumberFormat;

   // Displays a value with the default separator (S".").
   Double myInt = 0.1234;
   Console::WriteLine( myInt.ToString( "P", nfi ) );

   // Displays the same value with a blank as the separator.
   nfi->PercentDecimalSeparator = " ";
   Console::WriteLine( myInt.ToString( "P", nfi ) );
}
