MacDING For Mac Publisher's description
MacDING is an english <-> german dictionary-lookup program for Mac OS X.
MacDING is an english <-> german dictionary-lookup program for Mac OS X. It is a reimplementation of Frank Richter's DING (DIctionary Nice Grep) lookup program for Unix/Linux Systems (using Tcl/Tk). MacDING is natively implemented in Cocoa and provides therefore an eye-candy Apple interface. The functionability at this point however, is not as comprehensive as the one provided by the original software (e.g. no ispell/dict lookups). If you need a more comprehensive application, you might consider installing the original software (it runs under Apple's X11).
This program as well as its predecessor is released under the GNU General Public License. It can therefore be modified and reused under the conditions of this license. I would be happy about improvements of this application (you will need a little knowledge about Cocoa/Objective-C and Python, pyobjc).
System Requirements:No special requirements.
Program Release Status: Major Update
Program Install Support: Install and Uninstall
