The Dictionary Server Protocol (DICT) is a TCP transaction based query/response protocol that allows a client to access dictionary definitions from a set of natural language dictionary databases. It is designed to provide access to multiple databases of English words. A DICT server is only an interface between client programs and the dictionary databases.
dictionary is a Perl cgi script which provides browser access to DICT servers via an HTML form-based interface which can be used to fetch dictionary definitions and to match whole or partial words and word lists. The browser-based interface allows selection of servers, available server-based dictionary databases, and word matching strategies.
