#define U_ICUDATA_ENTRY_POINT   U_DEF2_ICUDATA_ENTRY_POINT(U_ICU_VERSION_MAJOR_NUM,U_LIB_SUFFIX_C_NAME)

U_ICU_ENTRY_POINT is the name of the DLL entry point to the ICU data library.

Defined as a literal, not a string. Tricky Preprocessor use - ## operator replaces macro paramters with the literal string from the corresponding macro invocation, before other macro substitutions. Need a nested #defines to get the actual version numbers rather than the literal text U_ICU_VERSION_MAJOR_NUM into the name. The net result will be something of the form #define U_ICU_ENTRY_POINT icudt19_dat
