NAME
       ding - dictionary lookup	program	for Unix

SYNOPSIS
       ding [options] [phrase]

DESCRIPTION
       ding is a dictionary lookup program for X Windows/Unix. It comes	with a
       German-English dictionary with about 345,000 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,	inter-
       face 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

       line),  type  in	search word, press ENTER, read results.	Search further
