NAME ^

tkdict - a perl client for accessing network dictionary servers

SYNOPSIS ^

tkdict [OPTIONS]

DESCRIPTION ^

tkdict is a Perl/Tk client for the Dictionary server protocol (DICT), which is used to query natural dictionaries hosted on a remote machine.

At the moment it's not very user oriented, since I've just been creating an interface to the protocol.

There is more information available in the Help menu when running tkdict.

OPTIONS ^

-h server or -host server

The hostname for the DICT server.

-p port or -port port

Specify the port for connections (default is 2628, from RFC 2229).

-c string or -client string

Specify the CLIENT identification string sent to the DICT server.

-help

Display a short help message including command-line options.

-doc

Display the full documentation for tkdict.

-version

Display the version of tkdict

-verbose

Display verbose information as tkdict runs.

-debug

Display debugging information as tkdict runs. Useful mainly for developers.
