FreeDict HOWTO

Sebastian Humenda edited this page May 14, 2018 · 20 revisions

This document describes how to build, install and improve FreeDict project dictionaries. It is aimed at developers rather than end users and was written from the point of view of a GNU/Linux based platform. Generally the information should be portable across any unix-alike operating system. The approach is reasonably comprehensive. Information is given on installation issues, XML basics, editor selection/setup, developer tools etc.

Epigram

The bait is the means to get the fish where you want it, catch the fish and you forget the bait. The snare is the means to get the rabbit where you want it, catch the rabbit and forget the snare. Words are the means to get the idea where you want it, catch on to the idea and you forget about the words. Where shall I find a man who forgets about words, and have a word with him?
