Dictionary viewer

(1/3) > >>

OS923:
Dictionary viewer is a remake of KeyInto 1.8.7.
See http://macintoshgarden.org/apps/keyinto-dictionary-1
I decoded the dictionaries from KeyInto.
Then I display them in a larger font and in color.

You can copy it here:

The dictionaries are on the test files page.

MacTron:
Thanks. Great work.

BTW, do you know something about creating MacWrite spelling  dictionaries ?

jamunroe:
Very cool. Thanks!

OS923:
I improved on it, but it's not ready to upload. First I have to make new icons. The new version will have dictionaries in Unicode and there will be a Linux version. There will also be a conversion program that enables you to create your own dictionaries by converting plain text to binary.

I don't use that program anymore, but I copied it and I will look into it. As I remember, the dictionaries are similar to those of ClarisWorks so I will look into that too.

The dictionaries that come with my program have about 12,000 entries, which is in my opinion not enough. The first words that I looked up were not found (navarin, cordage).

I search large open source dictionaries: explanatory dictionaries and bilingual dictionaries, of which the format is public. Then I want to convert them.
