Example #1 Testing different code points

<?php
var_dump
(IntlChar::charDirection("A") === IntlChar::CHAR_DIRECTION_LEFT_TO_RIGHT);
var_dump(IntlChar::charDirection("\u{05E9}") === IntlChar::CHAR_DIRECTION_RIGHT_TO_LEFT);
var_dump(IntlChar::charDirection("+") === IntlChar::CHAR_DIRECTION_EUROPEAN_NUMBER_SEPARATOR);
var_dump(IntlChar::charDirection(".") === IntlChar::CHAR_DIRECTION_COMMON_NUMBER_SEPARATOR);
?>

The above example will output:

bool(true)
