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.
