GNU Dico is an implementation of the DICT protocol as defined in RFC 2229.
It is fully modular: the daemon itself (dicod) provides only the server
functionality, and knows nothing about database formats. Actual searches
are performed by functions supplied in loadable modules. A single module
can serve one or more databases.
This package contains a Python module that provides a Dico client and a simple
interactive shell.
