NAME

       ding - dictionary lookup program for Unix

SYNOPSIS

       ding [options] [phrase]

DESCRIPTION

       ding  is  a  dictionary  lookup program for X Windows/Unix. It comes with a German-English
       dictionary with about 270,000 entries.

       It is based on Tk version >= 8.3 and uses the agrep(1) or egrep(1) tools for searching.

       In addition to this ding can also search using ispell(1) and dict(1).

       It has many configuration options, such as search preferences, interface language (English
       or  German), colors. It has history and help functions and comes with useful key and mouse
       bindings for quick and easy lookups.

       If you enter some word or phrase as command line argument,  ding  will  start  up  with  a
       translation of this word/phrase.

              Start searching for selected word (X selection).
