edict-1.0 released

Great news for all command line freaks: edict 1.0 is now out. edict is a command line dictionary, just 16k in size. The magic - it doesn't invent it's own dictionary... rather uses standard dictionaries available on the WWW. This new version adds many desired features like thesaurus, suggestions/corrections and multiple invocation. Thanks for your support and helping me keep the spirit alive. Happy edicting!

edict 1.0 alpha released

The first (alpha) version of edict has been released. edict is a command line dictionary written in PERL. It is incredibly small (7kb) yet amazingly useful. If you love command line and hate to switch to your browser for word meanings, edict is the tool for you. Give it a try! Better GRE/GMAT scores guaranteed :)!


Thanks in advance to all those who are going to try it and send in their comments/suggestions/bug reports.
