"typed by pinyin"? That is already ASCII to begin with.

You need to install Chinese pinyin input method first. i.e. you will type in Chinese characters in a terminal followed by "Enter", which will give its traditional version in a new line.

sorry about multiple posts.

Comment by dexterhu 174 weeks and 6 days ago

terrible idea. about 20% of simplified and traditional characters are not bijective mappings. so 20% of the output of this will be wrong.

wikipedia's s > t conversion tables are always expanding. they're based on a variety of sources, and someone has already written a helper library for using the conversion tables bit of the wikimedia source code...
