This package contains the GNU version of the Collaborative
International Dictionary of English, formatted for use by the
dictionary server in the dictd package.  The GCIDE contains the
full text of the 1913 Webster's Unabridged Dictionary, supplemented by
many definitions from WordNet, the Century Dictionary, 1906, and many
additional definitions contributed by volunteers.
The definitions in the core of this dictionary are at least 85 years
old, so they can not be expected to be politically correct by
contemporary standards, and no attempt has been, or will be, made to
make them so.
This package will be of limited use without the server found in the
dictd package, or another RFC 2229 compliant server.
