Abstract

Computers and the Internet technology are rapidly diffusing all over the world now. At the same time, the number of Chinese characters required by the computer is increasing, and employing pre-existing methods such as the use of User-defined characters or changing fonts has become insufficient to encounter all Chinese characters.

I would like to suggest a system which automatically generates all Chinese characters that exist in the world. I collected its technical requirement which is considered cultural matter such as Chinese character study and calligraphy. In between The outline font for printing and the bit-mapped font for the screen display have different characteristics, but it was found that the basic portion of the engine can be shared between the two.
