       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

	      Possible values for a const FriBidiCharType are as follows:
	      FRIBIDI_TYPE_LTR	Left-To-Right letter.
	      FRIBIDI_TYPE_RTL	Right-To-Left letter.
	      FRIBIDI_TYPE_AL	Arabic Letter.
	      FRIBIDI_TYPE_EN	European Numeral.
	      FRIBIDI_TYPE_AN	Arabic Numeral.
	      FRIBIDI_TYPE_ES	European number	Separator.
	      FRIBIDI_TYPE_ET	European number	Terminator.
	      FRIBIDI_TYPE_CS	Common Separator.
	      FRIBIDI_TYPE_NSM	Non Spacing Mark.
	      FRIBIDI_TYPE_BN	Boundary Neutral.
	      FRIBIDI_TYPE_BS	Block Separator.
	      FRIBIDI_TYPE_SS	Segment	Separator.
	      FRIBIDI_TYPE_WS	WhiteSpace.
	      FRIBIDI_TYPE_ON	Other Neutral.
	      FRIBIDI_TYPE_LRE	Left-to-Right Embedding.
	      FRIBIDI_TYPE_RLE	Right-to-Left Embedding.
	      FRIBIDI_TYPE_LRO	Left-to-Right Override.
	      FRIBIDI_TYPE_RLO	Right-to-Left Override.
	      FRIBIDI_TYPE_PDF	Pop Directional	Flag.

       const FriBidiStrIndex len
	      Input string length.

       This function finds the base direction of a single  paragraph,  as  de-
       fined  by  rule	P2 of the Unicode Bidirectional	Algorithm available at

       You typically do	 not  need  this  function  as	fribidi_get_par_embed-
       ding_levels()  knows  how to compute base direction itself, but you may
       need this to implement a	more sophisticated  paragraph  direction  han-
       dling.	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.
