Projects / Ruby/DICT


Ruby/DICT is an RFC 2229-compliant client-side library implementation of the DICT protocol, written in the Ruby programming language. It can be used to write clients that access dictionary definitions from a set of natural language dictionary databases. rdict, a powerful CLI dictionary client built on Ruby/DICT, is included.
