GNU Dico
a flexible modular implementation of DICT server (RFC 2229).

Dico is a flexible modular implementation of DICT server (RFC 2229).

In contrast to another existing servers, it does not depend on particular database format, instead it handles database accesses using loadable modules. The package includes several loadable modules for interfacing with various database formats, among them a module for databases and a module for transparently accessing WordNet. New modules may be written in Guile or Python.

A console client program, dico, is also included.
