Dictionary in a Box

Hi girls and guys,

This time just a short trick. If you need a good dictionary
you can use dict based for the shell too. I installed
ding via zypper

zypper in ding

and added this function to my .bashrc in $HOME

tr \| \n < /usr/share/dict/de-en.txt |grep --color $1

this way you can type

translate hello

in a bash and get a colorized output of the translation. Hope you find this a useful hint.

You may also use one of these dictionaries.

Until next time than.
