Mojikyo Character Map #

The Mojikyo Character Map is a freeware application (bundled with the necessary TrueType fonts) that provides easy access to =~ 110,000 mainly Chinese characters:

Mojikyo Character Map

I stumbled onto the Mojikyo Character Map in a blog post by Jonathon Delacour from 2003 that alluded to 34 files totaling 52MB. Since the Mojikyo website and Stanford mirror no longer offer the files, I started poking around the Internet Archive cache of the Stanford mirror, which has all of the necessary files but one (found elsewhere - see below):
  1. Downloaded the compressed application, MOCM400.EXE, located in the CMAP subdirectory
  2. Batch downloaded (via Orbit Downloader) the 33 compressed fonts found in WINTTF
  3. MOJIKM5E.EXE was the only file not available, but I found a copy on the Chinese GNU/Linux Extensions website (which turns out to host all of the necessary files).
  4. I now had 34 files totaling =~ 52MB:

  1. Copied the TTF files to %WinDir%\Fonts
  2. Launched MOCHRMAP.exe
Two final notes: The University of Virginia website hosts what appears to be a slightly older version of the application and associated fonts. Also, OS X's Character Palette provides similar functionality as the Mojikyo Character Map, though it does not contain all of the same characters by default.
