SYNOPSIS

ding [options] [phrase]

DESCRIPTION

ding is a dictionary lookup program for X Windows/Unix. It comes with a German-English dictionary with about 185,000 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.

-m, --mini

USAGE

It’s very simple: Start ding (via KDE menu "Tools" or via command line), type in search word, press ENTER, read results.
