NAME

       Search::Dict - look - search for key in dictionary file

SYNOPSIS

           use Search::Dict;
           look *FILEHANDLE, $key, $dict, $fold;

           use Search::Dict;
           look *FILEHANDLE, $params;

DESCRIPTION

       Sets file position in FILEHANDLE to be first line greater than or equal (stringwise) to
       $key.  Returns the new file position, or -1 if an error occurs.

       The flags specify dictionary order and case folding:

       If $dict is true, search by dictionary order (ignore anything but word characters and
       whitespace).  The default is honour all characters.

       If $fold is true, ignore case.  The default is to honour case.

       If there are only three arguments and the third argument is a hash reference, the keys of
       that hash can have values "dict", "fold", and "comp" or "xfrm" (see below), and their
       corresponding values will be used as the parameters.

       If a comparison subroutine (comp) is defined, it must return less than zero, zero, or
       greater than zero, if the first comparand is less than, equal, or greater than the second
       comparand.

       If a transformation subroutine (xfrm) is defined, its value is used to transform the lines
       read from the filehandle before their comparison.
