I'd like to put together a Dutch/English dictionary
pair for zbedic and submit it to the project.

Is there any documentation on how to actually build a
dictionary?

    For some reason I cannot put the bedic format in the Docs
    section. To get it, please download the source code of
    libbedic.

    Thanks

    O.k. I've created a dictionary, using the docs from
    libbedic. However, there doesn't seem to be any
    utilities/docs on how to turn a .dic file into a .dic.dz
    file. Any hints?

    I've picked up from reading the code that it is a modified
    gzip, but can't seen anywhere how to work out how to
    generate it. Is there a piece of code somewhere to do it?

    Thanks.

    O.k. I've solved it. Get the dictd package from
    www.dict.org. That contains dictzip which is what creates
    .dz files.
