Remake of OSX's Dictionary

<< < (2/9) > >>

OS923:
I converted the dictionary to a 7-bit ASCII Scheme expression without backslash.
Then I converted it to a binary format that contains the dictionary, thesaurus and index.
It's half the size of the original.

OS923:
The versions for Windows and Linux will be able to draw all characters as text.

MacTron:

--- End quote ---

but it seems that it can't deal well with UTF-16 (2 bytes per char) ...

OS923:
Is there a plugin for REALbasic which can show the Unicode correctly?

OS923:
I fragmalyzed REALbasic 5.5.5.
It doesn't use Text Services while this is necessary for Unicode support.
Thus OSX's Dictionary can't be remade with REALbasic 5.5.5.
