NAME

       sdcv - console version of StarDict program

SYNOPSIS

       sdcv [ options ] [list of words]

DESCRIPTION

       sdcv  is  a  simple,  cross-platform  text-based  utility for working with dictionaries in
       StarDict format.  Each word from "list of words" may be a string with a  leading  '/'  for
       using  a  Fuzzy  search  algorithm, with a leading '|' for using full-text search, and the
       string may contain '?' and '*' for regexp  search.   It  works  in  interactive  and  non-
       interactive  mode.   To  exit from interactive mode press Ctrl+D.  In interactive mode, if
       sdcv was compiled with readline library support, you can use the UP and DOWN keys to cycle
       through history.

OPTIONS

       -h  --help
               Display help message and exit

       -v --verbose
               Display version and exit

       -l --list-dicts
               Display list of available dictionaries and exit

       -u --use-dict filename
               For search use only dictionary with this bookname

       -n --non-interactive
               For use in scripts

       -x --only-data-dir
               For  use  in scripts: only use the dictionaries in data-dir, do not search in user
               and system directories

       -e --exact-search
               Do not fuzzy-search for similar words, only return exact matches

       -j --json
               Print the results of list-dicts and searches as json, not as plain text.  For  use
               in automatically processing the results of a dictionary lookup.

       --utf8-output
               Force sdcv to not convert to locale charset, output in utf8

       --utf8-input
               Force sdcv to not convert from locale charset, assume that input is in utf8

       --data-dir path/to/directory
               Use  this  directory  as  the path to the stardict data directory. This means that
               sdcv searches for dictionaries in data-dir/dic directory.

       --color Use ANSI escape codes for colorizing sdcv output (does not work with json output).

FILES

       /usr/share/stardict/dic

       $(HOME)/.stardict/dic

              Place where sdcv expects to find dictionaries.  Instead of  /usr/share/stardict/dic
              you  can  use  any  directory  you want, just set the STARDICT_DATA_DIR environment
              variable.  For example, if you have dictionaries  in  /mnt/data/stardict-dicts/dic,
              set STARDICT_DATA_DIR to /mnt/data/stardict-dicts.

       $(HOME)/.sdcv_history

              This  file  includes  the  last $(SDCV_HISTSIZE) words, which you sought with sdcv.
              SDCV uses this file only if it was compiled with readline library support.

       $(HOME)/.sdcv_ordering

              This is a text file containing one dictionary bookname per line.  It  specifies  in
              which order the results of a search should be shown.

ENVIRONMENT

       Environment Variables Used By sdcv:

       STARDICT_DATA_DIR   If set, sdcv uses this variable as the data directory, this means that
                           sdcv searches dictionaries in $STARDICT_DATA_DIR\dic

       SDCV_HISTSIZE       If set, sdcv writes in $(HOME)/.sdcv_history the last $(SDCV_HISTSIZE)
                           words,  which  you look up using sdcv. If it is not set, then the last
                           2000 words are saved in $(HOME)/.sdcv_history.

       SDCV_PAGER          If SDCV_PAGER is set, its value is used as the name of the program  to
                           use to display the dictionary article.
