NAME

       fribidi_get_par_direction - get base paragraph direction

SYNOPSIS

       #include <fribidi.h>

       extern FriBidiParType fribidi_get_par_direction
       (
            const FriBidiCharType *bidi_types,
            const FriBidiStrIndex len
       );

PARAMETERS

       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.

DESCRIPTION

       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.

RETURNS

       Base pargraph direction.  No weak paragraph direction is returned, only LTR, RTL, or ON.

       Possible values for an extern 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.
