NAME

       fribidi_get_bidi_type - get character bidi type

SYNOPSIS

       #include <fribidi.h>

       FriBidiCharType fribidi_get_bidi_type(FriBidiChar ch);

PARAMETERS

       FriBidiChar ch
              Input character.

DESCRIPTION

       This  function  returns the bidi type of a character as defined in Table 3.7 Bidirectional
       Character   Types    of    the    Unicode    Bidirectional    Algorithm    available    at
       http://www.unicode.org/reports/tr9/#Bidirectional_Character_Types,  using data provided in

       http://www.unicode.org/Public/UNIDATA/UnicodeData.txt.

       There are a few macros defined in fribidi-bidi-types.h for querying a bidi type.
