Right-to-left languages?

Hi all,

Can anyone please report the status of rendering of right-to-left
languages in tk? I develop an LGPL NLP-related application
(http://www.ellogon.org) and recently I got a question about supporting
the Hebrew language. I need information on how the text widget
can render these kind of languages and possible tkhtml.

I feel a little akward for asking such a question :-) but I have no
experence with right-to-left languages...

Regards,

George

Bidi is not supported on Tk yet.  "Not supported" has different
consequences depending on the widget and the underlying platform
toolkit.  For read-only widgets there are platform specific
work-arounds and on some native controls (like menus on Windows and
Mac OS X) it just works automatically.

You may want to look into gnocl, the Tcl binding for the Gnome
toolkit.  Gnome is supposed to support bidi fine.  I have never tried
it myself though.

Maybe <http://wiki.tcl.tk/1126> is a good start?

As a first step, I am looking support only for the text widget, in readonly
state.
I simply want to display Hebrew :-)

Unfortunatelly, gnocl is not an option for my case. I need a solution for
at least linux+windows, and I suppose gnocl would be difficult to install
& maintain under windows. Not to mention that may be licensing issues,
as my app is LGPL...

Thanks,

George

If this is the case, then Tk has all you need and the wiki pages
referenced previously (in particular "Heblish") has the code you
need.  You can contact Richard Suchenwirth directly as well, as
he has done this often.

If you don't need anything fancy, the [label] widget may be enough for
you, depending on requirements.

On Unix/Linux you will need to do line breaks and bidi rearrangement
yourself because the drawing engine doesn't.  The same probably on
Windows 9x/Me and NT4 if you care for those platforms.

On Windows W2K/XP the OS drawing engine does bidi glyph rearrangement
so you should just need to set right-alignment and use a hebrew font
(do not use a non-hebrew font and depend on automatic font
substitution, really select a hebrew font, otherwise the glyph order
will be right but word order will be wrong).

On Mac, Unicode text rendering is not yet ready at all.  When it's
ready, it should automatically behave similarly to Windows W2K/XP.

I forgot to say that this may require the hebrew language support to
be installed.  This comes in either the IE hebrew support, or in the
hebrew keyboard support, which you can install through the keyboard
control panel.

This seems to be extremely difficult in my case. I want to display Hebrew
in a text widget, and I have character offsets that I want to add tags.
If I modify the text to be displayed & insert tabs & new lines (as I think a
proc from D.K. Fellows does), I have to somehow make also transformations
to these character offsets. I think this is something very difficult to be
done by
me :-)

I can see Hebrew in my browser, under both linux & windows, so I suppose
there is no need to install anything more. When you say that I need to set
right-alignment, is this through a text widget option, or do I need to
insert
tabs & new lines?

Well, my app does not support Mac at all :-)

in fact that application allows hebrew typing from right to left in a
text widget and will work everywhere. (It's got no special characters,
though).

For [text] that would be a tag with "-justify right", I guess.
[label] also has a "-justify" option.

Changing x-axis plot from right to left to left to right
Hi, For mathematical reasons, I need to change the way that gnuplots my data along the X axis from right to left to left to right (that is, at the minute it plots from 20 down to 1, not from 1 to 20) I am aware of set xrange reverse but this just inverts the whole graph and displays from 17 .... 1 down along the x-axis rather than plotting the other way round. I'm rather stuck and would appreciate some advice.

It makes absolutely no difference whatsoever whether a line was drawn from left to right or right to left --- it'll be the same line in the end, consisisting of exactly the same pixels being coloured. So since this doesn't make sense, maybe you should tell us what your actual problem is, so we can find out how that might be solved.

Is tcl the right tool for this?
I have never used tcl and am wondering is tcl is the right tool. Any help is appreciated. I=92m writing Oracle pl server pages in a standard text editor. Only thing is I don=92t like some of the syntax. For example: Instead of writing: <%=3D blahblah %> I would like to write #blahblah# And when I need to write # I would like to use ## (very much the same as coldfusion=92s syntax). There are few other things I would like to change. This would be a good start. So could tcl act as a preprocessor and change the syntax of the text file before I issue another command which will load it into the Oracle db? So I would create the file a.psp and then execute a tcl script which would change it into b.psp and then I could load and compile b.psp. Is tcl a good choice for this sort of thing? Are there already scripts of this nature that I could use as an example?

It really depends on exactly what you want. If you're happy with running a preprocessing step that transforms one file into another, then most certainly Tcl can do it, and easily. I advise using a different file extension for the input files because it's formally a different (but closely related) language that they contain.
