Sub_title: + 2 questions

StarDict 3.0.1 (website).

A multilingual dictionary program with support for a "scan key" = it pops up with translation for a word, if you select it (in any program) and simultaneously press a certain modifier key. Many dictionaries for it are available on the web.

Compiled on Puppy 4.3. No dependencies. After install the icon is in the "Document" group.
The ./configure compile-flags were
--prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --mandir=/usr/share/man
So it comes with no dictionaries included by default.

Dictionaries you can get here.
Installation instructions for dictionaries:
- extract the compressed dictionary file
- move extracted dir to /usr/local/share/stardict/dic/


I have some questions too (it's my first pet):
- I compiled it on a Pentium 4 so I said (during the pet-make-process) it's for i686, is this correct?
- Is it normal to put yourself as pet-maker somewhere in the info files or not? I didn't btw.
- What should I do with the DEV and DOC pets?

I would appreciate comments.

Stardict seems to have run into some copyright problems and all the dictionaries were taken down. You can still get dictionaries from here though: http://xdxf.revdanica.com/down/index.php

You should compile for i386 or i486 so it will work on old machines. I think the defaults are usually fine so I don't change them and so far no one's complained.

You can post the dev and doc pets here with the main pet.
