Bidirectional text spoofing

Bidirectional text spoofing

Unicode bidirectional text characters can alter the order in which the compiler processes tokens. However, this can also be used to hide malicious code, and can be difficult to spot. This lint check audits the source code and looks for cases where it looks like bidirectional text has the potential to be misleading.
