ding - dictionary lookup program for Unix


ding [options] [phrase]


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.


-x, --selection
Start searching for selected word (X selection).

-m, --mini
Start with minimal size (search form only).

-r, --remote
Start search in an already running program.

-R, --remote-new
Start search in an already running program or start a new program.

Do not save preferences

-D #, --debug #
Start with debug output, # = number (1..15).


It's very simple: Start ding (via KDE menu "Tools" or via command line), type in search
word, press ENTER, read results. Search further by double-clicking a word, or select a
word in another window and drop it by clicking with mouse button 2 over the "ding window".
For further information consult the program help by pressing F1.
