This is "Ding"
* a dictionary lookup program for Unix,
* DIctionary Nice Grep,
* a Tk based Front-End to [ae]grep, (hun|a|i)spell, dict, ...
* Ding {n} :: thing
This package needs agrep(1) or egrep(1) as a back end.  agrep is
preferable, because it supports fault tolerant searching.
You have to install some translation dictionary word list with a
word/phrase in two languages in one line with some kind of separator
between them.  The default configuration of ding uses the
German-English dictionary which can be found in the trans-de-en
package, but you can use every other translation word lists with one
entry per line.
