Field Formatter API

Define Field API formatter types.

Field API formatters specify how fields are displayed when the entity to which the field is attached is displayed. Fields of a given field type may be displayed using more than one formatter. In this case, the Field UI module allows the site builder to choose which formatter to use. Field formatters are defined by implementing hook_field_formatter_info().
