It may also include other calendar specific settings, such as the Gregorian/Julian transition instant.

Return Values

IntlCalendar::createInstance('Europe/Lisbon''pt_PT');
$cal2 IntlCalendar::createInstance('Europe/Lisbon''es_ES');
$cal2->clear();

var_dump($cal1->isEquivalentTo($cal2)); // true

$cal3 IntlCalendar::createInstance('Europe/Lisbon''en_US');
var_dump($cal1->isEquivalentTo($cal3)); // false
var_dump($cal1->getFirstDayOfWeek(),    // 2 (Monday)
