       forder - convert file data order

       [file ...]

       The  text orientation (mode) of a file can be right-to-left (non-Latin)
       or left-to-right (Latin).  This text orientation	 can  affect  the  way
       data  is	 arranged  in the file.	 The data arrangements that result are
       called screen order and keyboard order.	converts the order of  charac‐
       ters in the file from screen order to keyboard order or vice versa.

       reads  the  concatenation of input files (or standard input if none are
       given) and produces on standard	output	a  converted  version  of  its
       input.	If appears as an input file name, reads standard input at that
       point (use to delimit the end of options in such instances).

       converts input files for all languages that  are	 read  from  right-to-
       left.  Unless the option is used, the command merely copies input files
       to standard output for languages that are read from left-to-right.

       recognizes the following options:

	      Convert file data order for languages read from left-to-right.

	      Identify the file as having been created in Latin mode.

	      Identify the file as having been created in non-Latin mode.

   Environment Variables
       The environment variable determines the mode and	 order	of  the	 file.
       The syntax of is:

	      [mode] [_order]

       where  mode  describes  the  mode of a file: represents Latin mode, and
       represents non-Latin mode.  Non-Latin mode is assumed for values	 other
       than and The order describes the data order of a file: is keyboard, and
       is screen.  Keyboard order is assumed for values other  than  and  Mode
       information in can be overridden from the command line.

       The  environment variable determines the direction of a language (left-
       to-right or right-to-left).

       The environment variable determines whether a language has  alternative

       The  environment variable determines the language in which messages are

   International Code Set Support
       Single-byte character code sets are supported.

       The following command begins with file1, which exists in screen	order,
       converts	 it to keyboard order, sorts the keyboard-ordered output, con‐
       verts it back to screen order, and redirects the output to file2.  Note
       that is given to inform that file1 was created in non-Latin mode.

       It is the user's responsibility to ensure that the environment variable
       accurately reflects the status of the file.

       If present, alternative numbers always have  a  left-to-right  orienta‐

       The  command is HP proprietary, not portable to other vendors' systems,
       and will not be provided in future HP-UX releases.

       was developed by HP.
