NAME
       bicon.bin - bidirectional console layer

SYNOPSIS
       bicon.bin [command [arguments...]]

DESCRIPTION
       bicon.bin  is  a	 console program that supports bidirectional text dis-
       play, for languages like	Arabic,	Persian	and Hebrew.

       bicon.bin hooks into the	I/O of the current console to  display	proper
       directed	 text  using  the Unicode BiDi algorithm. Proper directed here
       includes	shaping	and joining.

       bicon.bin does not load the keymap or font. Use bicon(1)	to get	proper
       support for your	BiDi language, including loading your keymap and font.

OPTIONS

	      is  executed  by bicon.bin after it loads. If omitted, bicon.bin
	      uses the current SHELL, or /bin/sh if SHELL is undefined.
