The service interprets data from the Unihan Database to encode text in Chinese characters. Its function emphasizes interpretations common in Mandarin Chinese, but it can draw upon information from the supporting database about Cantonese, Japanese, Korean, and Vietnamese encoding. The character range available is the ~21,000 characters within the range identified as CJK Unified Ideographs.
API methods support submission of a query specifying the subset of characters of interest with filters to narrow the return. Methods return Unicode values for the character(s) matching the query. Methods also can return the strokes making up the character(s) and pronunciations.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
