Module Version: 1.05   Source  

NAME ^

Locale::Hebrew - Bidirectional Hebrew support

VERSION ^

This document describes version 1.05 of Locale::Hebrew, released May 27, 2010.

SYNOPSIS ^

    use Locale::Hebrew;
    $visual = hebrewflip($logical);

DESCRIPTION ^

This module is based on code from the Unicode Consortium.

The charset on their code was bogus, therefore this module had to work the real charset from scratch. There might have some mistakes, though.

One function, hebrewflip, is exported by default.

NOTES ^

The input string is assumed to be in iso-8859-8 encoding by default.

On Perl version 5.8.1 and above, this module can handle Unicode strings by transparently encoding and decoding it as iso-8859-8. The return value should still be a Unicode string.

SEE ALSO ^

Text::Bidi, which implements related algorithms based on the fribidi library.

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS ^

Lots of help from Raz Information Systems, http://www.raz.co.il/.

Thanks to Oded S. Resnik for suggesting Unicode support and exporting hebrewflip by default.

AUTHORS ^

Audrey Tang <cpan@audreyt.org> is the current maintainer.

Ariel Brosh <schop@cpan.org> is the original author, now passed away.
