DICT is a simple dictionary protocol that allows you to query a dictionary server of your choice for word definitions.
The DICT protocol is very fast and small, so look-ups use a minimum of data.
The default server used by AnDICT is dict.org, however you may specify any server you want. Please note that word availability and definition quality depends on the server you use.
A network connection is required to use AnDICT.
