Prerequisites

  • Python ≥ 3.3
  • lxml ≥ 3.0
  • libydpdict
  • data files from the original CDs

Extracting data files

There are two ways to extract data files from the original CDs:

  • Use the Windows installer, then copy the files from the database subdirectory.

  • Use Unshield:

    unshield -L -O x /path/to/cdrom/DATA1.CAB 'Dict[0-9]*'
    
You can’t perform that action at this time.
