The Design of the CCCII and Its Application Considerations in Library Automation.
Huang, Jack Kai-tung; And Others
This paper presents the major characteristics of the Chinese Character Code for Information Interchange (CCCII) and indicates its intended application for the interchange of Chinese information among computer systems and communication facilities, especially in library networks. It is considered sufficient for present day library applications, business data processing, and even census application. The selection of CCCII's graphic symbols and its ordering of Chinese characters are discussed, as well as such application considerations as the achievement of coding and processing efficiency, the means of handling variant forms and pronunciations of Chinese characters, and the sorting and searching of Chinese lists. Mention is made of ongoing work on a Chinese cross-reference database with an authority file of Chinese characters and associated intelligent software. Various tables and charts and an 11-item bibliography are provided. (Author/ESR)
