CLex 2.0.1b -- A dictionary engine

Post by Info-Mac » November 17th, 1999, 11:00 am


CLex is a multilingual dictionary/spelling check engine for Macintosh.
With CLex you can lookup a word from within any application by pressing
Command-ENTER or click at a button of the floating window. The spelling
can be checked as you type. That is, you have a single spelling check
program no matter you are writing in a word processor or chatting
on-line. The floating window is accessible everywhere and lets you turn
on/off auto-spelling check and have access to a notebook. You can have
more than one spelling dictionaries installed and can arrage the order
of them by drag & drop within the list of installed dictionaries. You
may also turn on or off a particular dictionary by setting up a
spell-check configuration. This is useful if you have to write (or chat)
in different language or in different context. A statistical
pre-processing can be introduced to 'guess' a most propabable dictionary
against which the word should be checked. CLex also supports the basic
commands of network dictionary protocal DICT (RFC 2229), so you have
access to many freely available dictionaries on the Internet as well.
You need Power Mac to use CLex. CLex is a $29 shareware.
