fribidi_get_par_direction - get base paragraph direction


#include <fribidi.h> FriBidiParType fribidi_get_par_direction ( const FriBidiCharType *bidi_types, const FriBidiStrIndex len );


const FriBidiCharType *bidi_types Input list of bidi types as returned by fribidi_get_bidi_types(). Since there are 23 possible values for a const FriBidiCharType, they are not all listed here. const FriBidiStrIndex len Input string length.


This function finds the base direction of a single paragraph, as defined by rule P2 of the Unicode Bidirectional Algorithm available at http://www.unicode.org/reports/tr9/#P2. You typically do not need this function as fribidi_get_par_embedding_levels() knows how to compute base direction itself, but you may need this to implement a more sophisticated paragraph direction handling. Note that you can pass more than a paragraph to this function and the direction of the first non-neutral paragraph is returned, which is a very good heuristic to set direction of the neutral paragraphs at the beginning of text. For other neutral paragraphs, you better use the direction of the previous paragraph.


Base pargraph direction. No weak paragraph direction is returned, only LTR, RTL, or ON. Possible values for a FriBidiParType are as follows: FRIBIDI_PAR_LTR Left-To-Right paragraph. FRIBIDI_PAR_RTL Right-To-Left paragraph. FRIBIDI_PAR_ON DirectiOn-Neutral paragraph. FRIBIDI_PAR_WLTR Weak Left To Right paragraph. FRIBIDI_PAR_WRTL Weak Right To Left paragraph.
