dictionary server

This package provides a TCP-based server that allows a client to access dictionary definitions from a set of natural language dictionary databases.

Many dictionary databases have been packaged for use with dictd. They are described in the /usr/share/doc/dictd/README.Debian.gz file.

Either dict-gcide or dict-wn is essential for a useful English language dictionary server. It is strongly recommended that both be installed. If you are interested in computer terminology, it is recommended to install at least dict-jargon, dict-foldoc, or dict-vera.

The client program, dict, is packaged separately and is needed on all machines that will use the server.
