Function

GLibunichar_get_mirror_char

Declaration

gboolean
g_unichar_get_mirror_char (
  gunichar ch,
  gunichar* mirrored_ch
)

Description

In Unicode, some characters are “mirrored”. This means that their images are mirrored horizontally in text that is laid out from right to left. For instance, “(” would become its mirror image, “)”, in right-to-left text.

If ch has the Unicode mirrored property and there is another unicode character that typically has a glyph that is the mirror image of chs glyph and mirrored_ch is set, it puts that character in the address pointed to by mirrored_ch. Otherwise the original character is put.
