BiCon: a Bidirectional Console

BiCon can be used under Linux console, or terminal emulators with
basic Unicode rendering (UTF-8).

Run "bicon" to get a console supporting Arabic or Persian according
to LANG or specify the country on the command line, for instance:
bicon ir # for Persian (Iran)

Keymaps and fonts for Arabic and Persian are included.

Use alt+shift to switch keyboard layouts in a graphical environment.
To know more:

"man bicon"
"man bicon.bin"

See also /usr/doc/bicon-<VERSION>/README.Slackware for BiCon's usage.
