       -V, --version
	      Display version information and exit

       -v, --verbose
	      Verbose mode, same as --basedir --ltov --vtol \ --levels --changes

       -d, --debug
	      Output debug information

       -t, --test
	      Test fribidi, same as --clean --nobreak --showinput \ --reordernsm

       -c, --charset CS
	      Specify character set, default is UTF-8

       -C, --charsetdesc CS
	      Show descriptions for character set CS and exit

       --caprtl
	      Old style: set character set to CapRTL

       --showinput
	      Output the input string too

       --nopad
	      Do not right justify RTL lines

       --nobreak
	      Do not break long lines

       -w, --width W
	      Screen width for padding, default is 80, but if \ environment variable  COLUMNS  is
	      defined, its value \ will be used, --width overrides both of them.\

       -B, --bol BOL
	      Output string BOL before the visual string

       -E, --eol EOL
	      Output string EOL after the visual string

       --rtl  Force base direction to RTL

       --ltr  Force base direction to LTR

       --wrtl Set base direction to RTL if no strong character found

       --wltr Set base direction to LTR if no strong character found \ (default)

       --nomirror
	      Turn mirroring off, to do it later

       --reordernsm
	      Reorder NSM sequences to follow their base character

       --clean
	      Remove  explicit	format codes in visual string \ output, currently does not affect
	      other outputs

       --basedir
	      Output Base Direction

       --ltov Output Logical to Visual position map

       --vtol Output Visual to Logical position map

       --levels
	      Output Embedding Levels

       --changes
	      Output information about changes	between  \  logical  and  visual  string  (start,
	      length)

       --novisual
	      Do  not  output  the  visual  string,  to be used with \ --basedir, --ltov, --vtol,
	      --levels, --changes

	      All string indexes are zero based

   Output:
	      For each line of input, output something like this:

	      [input-str`  =>  '][BOL][[padding  space]visual-str][EOL]  [\n  base-dir][\n  ltov-
	      map][\n vtol-map][\n levels][\n changes]

   Available character sets:
       * UTF-8
	      : UTF-8 (Unicode)

       * CapRTL
	      : CapRTL (Test)		 X

	      *  ISO8859-6  : ISO 8859-6 (Arabic) * ISO8859-8 : ISO 8859-8 (Hebrew) * CP1255	:
