Is there a document of all common hanzi (ideally both traditional and simplified) and their complete stroke orders? I have one for wubihua, but it fails to distinguish between, for example

hs 丁 in reality h.sg

hs 丅 in truth h.s

despite a flick at the bottom of 丁 but not 丅.

I've been looking for such a document so that I can analyse characters en masse, but haven't had any luck so far. Wubihua / Traditional Chinese / Open-source index yieded good answers for wubihua, but taken more generally to all hanzi, does such a document exist with complete stroke order definition?

I'm looking for more of a plaintext document (or excel or similar) with a list. I know there are lots of images for stroke orders for learning characters, but I've been unable to find a file with a list of characters and their stroke "code", so to say

    There are 31 different strokes (汉字的笔画共有31种)。It appears question envisages a list made up stroke pinyin abbreviations, 横h、竖s、撇p、捺n、点d、提t、横折hz、横撇hp、横钩hg、竖折sz、竖提st、竖弯sw、竖钩sg、弯钩wang、斜钩xg、卧钩wog、撇折pz、撇点pd、横折折hzz、横折提hzt、横折弯hzwan、横折钩hzg、竖折折szz、竖折撇szp、竖弯钩swang、横折折折hzzz‌​、横折折撇hzzp、横折弯钩hzwang、横撇弯钩hpwang、竖折折钩szzg、横折折折钩hzzzg,e。g。下:横、竖、点;hsd;丁:横、竖钩;hsg。Note 2 strokes containing 弯wan,卧wo starting with w, but since there is only one stroke containing 卧, it seems 弯wan can still be abbreviated to w.E。g。下:横、竖、点h,s,d;丁:横、竖钩h,sg。 What would this be used for? – user6065 Jun 20 '15 at 20:56

I looked around, and it doesn't seem to be a complete, freely available resource for stroke orders. There is a Wikimedia commons project for creating stroke order for CJK characters, but it is far from finished (please contribute!).

I also found this resource from Dragon Character Training, an old PalmOS application, which seems to contain some character stroke order data, but I had some trouble figuring out how to extract stroke order from the character data. It should be possible, though, since an included script can animate character stroke orders.

I wish you best of luck!
