String plural(
  1. num howMany,
  2. {String zero,
  3. String one,
  4. String two,
  5. String few,
  6. String many,
  7. String other,
  8. String desc,
  9. Map<String, Object> examples,
  10. String locale,
  11. int precision,
  12. String name,
  13. List<Object> args,
  14. String meaning,
  15. bool skip}

Formats a message differently depending on howMany.

Selects the correct plural form from the provided alternatives. The other named argument is mandatory. The precision is the number of fractional digits that would be rendered when howMany is formatted. In some cases just knowing the numeric value of howMany itsef is not enough, for example "1 mile" vs "1.00 miles"

  // Call our internal method, dropping examples and desc because they're not
  // used at runtime and we want them to be optimized away.
