r2l is a set of utilities developed by the haifa linux club to make using hebrew on linux (and other unix based systems) a little easier and (for us) to have fun. it includes:

  • a base library, r2llib, the other components use for communicating
  • biditext, a shared library hooking into X to reverse hebrew strings when drawn to the screen (hebrew is written right-to-left)
  • r2l-plugins, a set of UIs (terminal, gnome and WindowMaker right now) for conveneiently setting the various biditext modes of operation
  • refreshd, a daemon in charge of automagically refreshing the applications' display if the biditext mode changes
  • License: GPL

    This project has the following developers:

    New Advogato Features

    Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.
