Graphical dictionary lookup program for Unix (Tk)

This is "Ding"

 * a dictionary lookup program for Unix,
 * DIctionary Nice Grep,
 * a Tk based Front-End to [ae]grep, ispell, dict, ...
 * Ding {n} :: thing

This package needs agrep(1) or egrep(1) as a back end. agrep is preferable, because it supports fault tolerant searching.

You have to install some translation dictionary word list with a word/phrase in two languages in one line with some kind of separator between them. The default configuration of ding uses the German-English dictionary which can be found in the trans-de-en package, but you can use every other translation word lists with one entry per line.
