 * \brief C API: Bidi algorithm
 *
 * <h2>Bidi algorithm for ICU</h2>
 *
 * This is an implementation of the Unicode Bidirectional algorithm.
 * The algorithm is defined in the
 * <a href="http://www.unicode.org/unicode/reports/tr9/">Unicode Standard Annex #9</a>,
 * version 13, also described in The Unicode Standard, Version 4.0 .<p>
 *
 * Note: Libraries that perform a bidirectional algorithm and
 * reorder strings accordingly are sometimes called "Storage Layout Engines".
 * ICU's Bidi and shaping (u_shapeArabic()) APIs can be used at the core of such
 * "Storage Layout Engines".
 *
 * <h3>General remarks about the API:</h3>
 *
 * In functions with an error code parameter,
 * the <code>pErrorCode</code> pointer must be valid
 * and the value that it points to must not indicate a failure before
 * the function call. Otherwise, the function returns immediately.
 * After the function call, the value indicates success or failure.<p>
 *
 * The &quot;limit&quot; of a sequence of characters is the position just after their
 * last character, i.e., one more than that position.<p>
 *
 * Some of the API functions provide access to &quot;runs&quot;.
 * Such a &quot;run&quot; is defined as a sequence of characters
 * that are at the same embedding level
 * after performing the Bidi algorithm.<p>

 * <h4> Sample code for the ICU Bidi API </h4>
 *
 * <h5>Rendering a paragraph with the ICU Bidi API</h5>
 *
 * This is (hypothetical) sample code that illustrates
 * how the ICU Bidi API could be used to render a paragraph of text.
 * Rendering code depends highly on the graphics system,
 * therefore this sample code must make a lot of assumptions,
 * which may or may not match any existing graphics system's properties.
 *
 * <p>The basic assumptions are:</p>
 * <ul>
 * <li>Rendering is done from left to right on a horizontal line.</li>
 * <li>A run of single-style, unidirectional text can be rendered at once.</li>
 * <li>Such a run of text is passed to the graphics system with
 *     characters (code units) in logical order.</li>
 * <li>The line-breaking algorithm is very complicated
 *     and Locale-dependent -
 *     and therefore its implementation omitted from this sample code.</li>
 * </ul>

/**
 * Modify the operation of the Bidi algorithm such that it implements some
 * variant to the basic Bidi algorithm or approximates an "inverse Bidi"
 * algorithm, depending on different values of the "reordering mode".
 * This function must be called before <code>ubidi_setPara()</code>, and stays
 * in effect until called again with a different argument.
 *
 * <p>The normal operation of the Bidi algorithm as described
 * in the Unicode Standard Annex #9 is to take text stored in logical
 * (keyboard, typing) order and to determine how to reorder it for visual
 * rendering.</p>
 *
 * <p>With the reordering mode set to a value other than
 * <code>#UBIDI_REORDER_DEFAULT</code>, this function changes the behavior of
 * some of the subsequent functions in a way such that they implement an
 * inverse Bidi algorithm or some other algorithm variants.</p>
 *
 * <p>Some legacy systems store text in visual order, and for operations
 * with standard, Unicode-based algorithms, the text needs to be transformed
 * into logical order. This is effectively the inverse algorithm of the
 * described Bidi algorithm. Note that there is no standard algorithm for
 * this "inverse Bidi", so a number of variants are implemented here.</p>
 *
 * <p>In other cases, it may be desirable to emulate some variant of the
 * Logical to Visual algorithm (e.g. one used in MS Windows), or perform a
 * Logical to Logical transformation.</p>
 *
 * <ul>
 * <li>When the reordering mode is set to <code>#UBIDI_REORDER_DEFAULT</code>,
 * the standard Bidi Logical to Visual algorithm is applied.</li>
 *
 * <li>When the reordering mode is set to
 * <code>#UBIDI_REORDER_NUMBERS_SPECIAL</code>,
 * the algorithm used to perform Bidi transformations when calling
 * <code>ubidi_setPara</code> should approximate the algorithm used in
 * Microsoft Windows XP rather than strictly conform to the Unicode Bidi
 * algorithm.
 * <br>
 * The differences between the basic algorithm and the algorithm addressed
 * by this option are as follows:
 * <ul>
 *   <li>Within text at an even embedding level, the sequence "123AB"
 *   (where AB represent R or AL letters) is transformed to "123BA" by the
 *   Unicode algorithm and to "BA123" by the Windows algorithm.</li>
 *   <li>Arabic-Indic numbers (AN) are handled by the Windows algorithm just
 *   like regular numbers (EN).</li>
 * </ul></li>
 *
 * <li>When the reordering mode is set to
 * <code>#UBIDI_REORDER_GROUP_NUMBERS_WITH_R</code>,
 * numbers located between LTR text and RTL text are associated with the RTL
 * text. For instance, an LTR paragraph with content "abc 123 DEF" (where
 * upper case letters represent RTL characters) will be transformed to
 * "abc FED 123" (and not "abc 123 FED"), "DEF 123 abc" will be transformed
 * to "123 FED abc" and "123 FED abc" will be transformed to "DEF 123 abc".
 * This makes the algorithm reversible and makes it useful when round trip
 * (from visual to logical and back to visual) must be achieved without
 * adding LRM characters. However, this is a variation from the standard
 * Unicode Bidi algorithm.<br>
 * The source text should not contain Bidi control characters other than LRM
 * or RLM.</li>
 *
 * <li>When the reordering mode is set to
 * <code>#UBIDI_REORDER_RUNS_ONLY</code>,
 * a "Logical to Logical" transformation must be performed:
 * <ul>
 * <li>If the default text level of the source text (argument <code>paraLevel</code>
 * in <code>ubidi_setPara</code>) is even, the source text will be handled as
 * LTR logical text and will be transformed to the RTL logical text which has
 * the same LTR visual display.</li>
 * <li>If the default level of the source text is odd, the source text
 * will be handled as RTL logical text and will be transformed to the
 * LTR logical text which has the same LTR visual display.</li>
 * </ul>
 * This mode may be needed when logical text which is basically Arabic or
 * Hebrew, with possible included numbers or phrases in English, has to be
 * displayed as if it had an even embedding level (this can happen if the
 * displaying application treats all text as if it was basically LTR).
 * <br>
 * This mode may also be needed in the reverse case, when logical text which is
 * basically English, with possible included phrases in Arabic or Hebrew, has to
 * be displayed as if it had an odd embedding level.
 * <br>
 * Both cases could be handled by adding LRE or RLE at the head of the text,
 * if the display subsystem supports these formatting controls. If it does not,
 * the problem may be handled by transforming the source text in this mode
 * before displaying it, so that it will be displayed properly.<br>
 * The source text should not contain Bidi control characters other than LRM
 * or RLM.</li>
 *
 * <li>When the reordering mode is set to
 * <code>#UBIDI_REORDER_INVERSE_NUMBERS_AS_L</code>, an "inverse Bidi" algorithm
 * is applied.
 * Runs of text with numeric characters will be treated like LTR letters and
 * may need to be surrounded with LRM characters when they are written in
 * reordered sequence (the option <code>#UBIDI_INSERT_LRM_FOR_NUMERIC</code> can
 * be used with function <code>ubidi_writeReordered</code> to this end. This
 * mode is equivalent to calling <code>ubidi_setInverse()</code> with
 * argument <code>isInverse</code> set to <code>TRUE</code>.</li>
 *
 * <li>When the reordering mode is set to
 * <code>#UBIDI_REORDER_INVERSE_LIKE_DIRECT</code>, the "direct" Logical to Visual
 * Bidi algorithm is used as an approximation of an "inverse Bidi" algorithm.
 * This mode is similar to mode <code>#UBIDI_REORDER_INVERSE_NUMBERS_AS_L</code>
 * but is closer to the regular Bidi algorithm.
 * <br>
 * For example, an LTR paragraph with the content "FED 123 456 CBA" (where
 * upper case represents RTL characters) will be transformed to
 * "ABC 456 123 DEF", as opposed to "DEF 123 456 ABC"
 * with mode <code>UBIDI_REORDER_INVERSE_NUMBERS_AS_L</code>.<br>
 * When used in conjunction with option
 * <code>#UBIDI_OPTION_INSERT_MARKS</code>, this mode generally
 * adds Bidi marks to the output significantly more sparingly than mode
 * <code>#UBIDI_REORDER_INVERSE_NUMBERS_AS_L</code> with option
 * <code>#UBIDI_INSERT_LRM_FOR_NUMERIC</code> in calls to
 * <code>ubidi_writeReordered</code>.</li>
 *
 * <li>When the reordering mode is set to
 * <code>#UBIDI_REORDER_INVERSE_FOR_NUMBERS_SPECIAL</code>, the Logical to Visual
 * Bidi algorithm used in Windows XP is used as an approximation of an
 * "inverse Bidi" algorithm.
 * <br>
 * For example, an LTR paragraph with the content "abc FED123" (where
 * upper case represents RTL characters) will be transformed to
 * "abc 123DEF.</li>
 * </ul>
 *
 * <p>In all the reordering modes specifying an "inverse Bidi" algorithm
 * (i.e. those with a name starting with <code>UBIDI_REORDER_INVERSE</code>),
 * output runs should be retrieved using
 * <code>ubidi_getVisualRun()</code>, and the output text with
 * <code>ubidi_writeReordered()</code>. The caller should keep in mind that in
 * "inverse Bidi" modes the input is actually visually ordered text and
 * reordered output returned by <code>ubidi_getVisualRun()</code> or
 * <code>ubidi_writeReordered()</code> are actually runs or character string
 * of logically ordered output.<br>
 * For all the "inverse Bidi" modes, the source text should not contain
 * Bidi control characters other than LRM or RLM.</p>
 *
 * <p>Note that option <code>#UBIDI_OUTPUT_REVERSE</code> of
 * <code>ubidi_writeReordered</code> has no useful meaning and should not be

 * also described in The Unicode Standard, Version 4.0 .<p>
 *
 * This function takes a piece of plain text containing one or more paragraphs,
 * with or without externally specified embedding levels from <i>styled</i>
 * text and computes the left-right-directionality of each character.<p>
 *
 * If the entire text is all of the same directionality, then
 * the function may not perform all the steps described by the algorithm,
 * i.e., some levels may not be the same as if all steps were performed.
 * This is not relevant for unidirectional text.<br>
 * For example, in pure LTR text with numbers the numbers would get
 * a resolved level of 2 higher than the surrounding text according to
 * the algorithm. This implementation may set all resolved levels to
 * the same value in such a case.<p>
 *
 * The text can be composed of multiple paragraphs. Occurrence of a block
 * separator in the text terminates a paragraph, and whatever comes next starts
 * a new paragraph. The exception to this rule is when a Carriage Return (CR)
 * is followed by a Line Feed (LF). Both CR and LF are block separators, but
 * in that case, the pair of characters is considered as terminating the
 * preceding paragraph, and a new paragraph will be started by a character
 * coming after the LF.
 *

 *        which will be set to contain the reordering information,
 *        especially the resolved levels for all the characters in <code>text</code>.
 *
 * @param text is a pointer to the text that the Bidi algorithm will be performed on.
 *        This pointer is stored in the UBiDi object and can be retrieved
 *        with <code>ubidi_getText()</code>.<br>
 *        <strong>Note:</strong> the text must be (at least) <code>length</code> long.
 *
 * @param length is the length of the text; if <code>length==-1</code> then
 *        the text must be zero-terminated.
 *
 * @param paraLevel specifies the default level for the text;
 *        it is typically 0 (LTR) or 1 (RTL).
 *        If the function shall determine the paragraph level from the text,
 *        then <code>paraLevel</code> can be set to
 *        either <code>#UBIDI_DEFAULT_LTR</code>
 *        or <code>#UBIDI_DEFAULT_RTL</code>; if the text contains multiple
 *        paragraphs, the paragraph level shall be determined separately for
 *        each paragraph; if a paragraph does not include any strongly typed
 *        character, then the desired default is used (0 for LTR or 1 for RTL).
 *        Any other value between 0 and <code>#UBIDI_MAX_EXPLICIT_LEVEL</code>
 *        is also valid, with odd levels indicating RTL.
 *
 * @param embeddingLevels (in) may be used to preset the embedding and override levels,
 *        ignoring characters like LRE and PDF in the text.
 *        A level overrides the directional property of its corresponding
