About

This is a trimmed down version of sdictviewer to be used as a library. I've made no modifications to it beyond ripping out files that weren't needed.

http://sdictviewer.sourceforge.net/

Installation

git clone git://github.com/jmhobbs/sdictviewer-lib.git
python setup.py install

Usage

import sys
import sdictviewer.formats.dct.sdict as sdict
import sdictviewer.dictutil

dictionary = sdict.SDictionary( 'webster_1913.dct' )
dictionary.load()

start_word = sys.argv[1]

found = False

for item in dictionary.get_word_list_iter( start_word ):
	try:
		if start_word == str( item ):
			instance, definition = item.read_articles()[0]
			print "%s: %s" % ( item, definition )
			found = True
			break
	except:
		continue

if not found:
	print "No definition for '%s'." % start_word

dictionary.close()
