dictd 1.12.1+dfsg-8 source package in Ubuntu


dictd (1.12.1+dfsg-8) unstable; urgency=medium

  * Ignore errors of update-inetd --disable/--remove, as update-inetd has
    recently stared failing on missing /etc/inetd.conf (closes: #906420).
    This is not done for --add/--enable, basing on the assumption that if
    user selects inetd-mode only if inetd is already installed.
  * Standards-Version: 4.2.0.

Binary packages built by this source

dict: dictionary client

 This package provides a client application to query a dictd server.
 The client-server protocol is TCP-based; the server may then be local or
 accessed through the network.
 The DICT Development Group maintains several public servers which can
 be accessed from any machine connected to the Internet. The default
 configuration is to query one of these servers first. This may be
 changed in the configuration file /etc/dictd/dict.conf.
 Queries may be customized by numerous command line options, including
 specifying the database(s) to be queried and the search strategy to
 be used.
 This package also provides dictl, which allows using UTF-8 encoded dictionaries
 with terminals that do not support UTF-8.

dictd: dictionary server

 This package provides a TCP-based server that allows a client to access
 dictionary definitions from a set of natural language dictionary databases.
 Many dictionary databases have been packaged for use with dictd. They are
 described in the /usr/share/doc/dictd/README.Debian.gz file.
 Either dict-gcide or dict-wn is essential for a useful English
 language dictionary server. It is strongly recommended that both be
 installed. If you are interested in computer terminology, it is
 recommended to install at least dict-jargon, dict-foldoc, or
 The client program, dict, is packaged separately and is needed on all
 machines that will use the server.

dictfmt: utility to format a file for use by a dictd server

 This package provides dictfmt. This utility can convert an input file
 to a dictionary database that conforms to the DICT protocol, and create
 a corresponding index file.
 The package also provides dictunformat, which creates a raw database
 from a dictionary index and a dictionary database.

dictfmt-dbgsym: debug symbols for dictfmt
dictzip: compression utility for dictionary databases

 This package provides a utility to compress dictionary databases with the
 LZ77 algorithm in a manner which is completely compatible with gzip(1),
 but using an extension that allows for random access to chunks
 of about 57kB without the overhead of decompressing the entire file.
 This package also includes dictunzip, to decompress dictzipped files,
 and dictzcat, for viewing dictzipped files.
