       Text::Bidi::Constants - Constants for Text::Bidi


       version 2.15


       This module provides various constants defined by the fribidi library. They can be used
       with some of the low-level functions in Text::Bidi, such as "get_bidi_types" in
       Text::Bidi, but are of little interest as far as standard usage is concerned.

       Note that, though these are variables, they are read-only.

       ·   Constants of the form FRIBIDI_TYPE_FOO are available as $Text::Bidi::Type::FOO. See
           fribidi_get_bidi_type(3) for possible constants.

       ·   Constants of the form FRIBIDI_MASK_FOO are converted to $Text::Bidi::Mask::FOO. See
           fribidi-bidi-types.h for possible masks and how to use them.

       ·   Constants of the form FRIBIDI_PAR_FOO are converted to $Text::Bidi::Par::FOO. See
           fribidi_get_par_embedding_levels(3) for possible constants.

       ·   Constants of the form FRIBIDI_FLAG_FOO or FRIBIDI_FLAGS_FOO are converted to
           $Text::Bidi::Flag::FOO or $Text::Bidi::Flag::FOO. See fribidi_reorder_line(3) and
           fribidi_shape(3) for possible constants. As a special case, FRIBIDI_FLAGS_ARABIC is
           also available as $Text::Bidi::Flag::ARABIC

       ·   Constants of the form FRIBIDI_JOINING_TYPE_FOO are converted to
           $Text::Bidi::Joining::FOO. See fribidi_get_joining_type(3) for possible constants.

       ·   Constants of the form FRIBIDI_CHAR_FOO are converted to the character they represent,
           and assigned to $Text::Bidi::Char::FOO. See fribidi-unicode.h for possible constants.
