Japanese characters in R

The implementation of Hershey vector fonts provides a large number of Japanese characters (Hiragana, Katakana, and Kanji).

Details

Without keyboard support for typing Japanese characters, the only way to produce these characters is to use special escape sequences: see Hershey.

For example, the Hiragana character for the sound "ka" is produced by \\#J242b and the Katakana character for this sound is produced by \\#J252b. The Kanji ideograph for "one" is produced by \\#J306c or \\#N0001.

The output from demo(Japanese) shows tables of the escape sequences for the available Japanese characters.
