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.
