public interface IFormatterConverter {
// Public Instance Methods
   public object Convert(object value, Type type);
   public object Convert(object value, TypeCode typeCode);
   public bool ToBoolean(object value);
   public byte ToByte(object value);
   public char ToChar(object value);
   public DateTime ToDateTime(object value);
   public decimal ToDecimal(object value);
   public double ToDouble(object value);
   public short ToInt16(object value);
   public int ToInt32(object value);
   public long ToInt64(object value);
   public sbyte ToSByte(object value);
   public float ToSingle(object value);
   public string ToString(object value);
   public ushort ToUInt16(object value);
   public uint ToUInt32(object value);
   public ulong ToUInt64(object value);
