FRIBIDI(1)	      User Contributed Perl Documentation	    FRIBIDI(1)

NAME
       fribidi.pl - Convert logical text to visual, via	the unicode bidi
       algorithm

VERSION
       version 2.15

SYNOPSIS
	   # display bidi text given in	logical	order in foo.txt
	   fribidi.pl foo.txt
	   # same, but force Right-To-Left paragraph direction
	   fribidi.pl --rtl foo.txt
	   # same, but break lines on spaces
	   fribidi.pl --rtl --break -- foo.txt

DESCRIPTION
       This script is similar to the fribidi(1)	program	provided with
       libfribidi, and performs	a subset of its	functions. The main point is
       to test Text::Bidi and provide a	usage example.

OPTIONS
       --(no)ltr
	   Force all paragraph directions to be	Left-To-Right. The default is
	   to deduce the paragraph direction via the bidi algorithm.

       --(no)rtl
	   Force all paragraph directions to be	Right-To-Left. The default is
	   to deduce the paragraph direction via the bidi algorithm.

       --width=n
	   Set the width of the	output lines to	n. The default is to use the
	   terminal width, or 80 if that cannot	be deduced.

       --break[=s]
	   Break the line at the string	s. If this is given, the width
	   functions as	an upper bound for the line length, and	the line might
	   be shorter. The default value for s is ' ', but note	that anything
	   following the option	will be	interpreted as the argument, unless it
	   is of the form "--...".

       --levels
	   Also	output the embedding levels of the characters. Mostly for
	   debugging.

       --help,-?
	   Give	a short	usage message and exit with status 1

       --version
	   Print a line	with the program name and exit with status 0

ARGUMENTS
       Any argument is interpreted as a	file name, and the content of all the
       files, as well as the standard input are	concatenated together.
