DICT Description:

Dictionary protocol and client

The DICT Protocol, described in RFC 2229 is a TCP transaction based query/response protocol that allows a client to access dictionary definitions from a set of natural language dictionary databases. While RFC 2229 is a finished document, we plan to clarify and enhance the protocol definition as we gain more experience with large dictionary database servers.

We write freely available software that implements the DICT protocol in a number of client and server configurations. We are developing an interchange format that will facilitate writing, sharing, and serving of dictionary database information. DICF and tools for manipulating DICF files should be available 4Q1998.

While we are currently using several freely available dictionary databases, with over 300,000 total headwords, we find that users still search for a considerable number of undefined words. We are slowly compiling lists of these words and writing definitions for them, and we encourage your assistance. The collected definitions will be used for a new database called FILE: The Free Internet Lexicon and Encyclopedia. The definitions will be freely available for other database maintainers to use (we do not exercise any editorial control over pre-existing databases).
