Method and apparatus for encoding, storing and accessing characters of a Chinese character-based language

Image Number 14 for United States Patent #4559615.

A complex character generator having a mass memory for storing the individual characters of a Chinese character-based language in pictorial form, the characters being represented by a two-part code, the first part defining a predetermined element common to a plurality of characters, and the second part defining the balance of the individual character. The character generator includes a keyboard having one section of keys for singularly entering a unique 2-digit code representing each of the predetermined common elements, and a numerical section for entering at least a 5-digit code defining the balance of the characters under a modified Four Corner Coding Method. A method for coding Chinese characters into the two-part code and the complete Four Corner Coding Method are also disclosed.
