poorman – Raster Chinese and Japanese fonts
The poorman's fonts, pmC and pmJ, are less than ideal implementations of Chinese and Japanese for TeX. They are less than ideal because they use fonts based on 24x24 dot-matrix fonts, and don't do vertical format typesetting and so forth.
The poorman's bundle provides a METAFONT code generator, which reads a dot matrix font, and emits code to represent it. Also provided are macros that permit use of the fonts in a TeX document.
