As I wrote in a separate posting the problem is in the fact that we all
use 'ad-hoc' pseudo alphabets for the demo/test cases. Make sure that
you know what bidi classes get generated for each text string and that
that matches your expectation.

biditest.cpp is a piece of the cross-testing harness for comparing the
Java and CPP implementations. It is 'distributed' solely so that other
people can maintain the Unicode reference code suites and repeat the
verification process, in case I should not be available do the work.
This file is not meant for public use, and you will find
language in the comments to that effect.
