       dicod - a DICT daemon


       dicod  [-fEsiTth]  [-I  DIR]  [-x  LEVEL-SPEC]  [--config=FILE]  [--foreground] [--stderr]
       [--syslog]  [--preprocessor=PROG]   [--no-preprocessor]   [--include-dir=DIR]   [--single-
       process]  [--inetd]  [--transcript] [--no-transcript] [--debug=LEVEL-SPEC] [--source-info]
       [--trace-grammar] [--trace-lex] [--config-help] [--lint] [--help] [--usage] [--version]


       dicod is an implementation of DICT server (RFC 2229). It  is  fully  modular:  the  daemon
       itself (dicod) provides only the server functionality, but it knows nothing about database
       formats. Actual searches are performed by functions supplied in loadable modules. A single
       module can serve one or more databases.
