PTkSdict is a dictionary using Sdict dictionary format. Unlike ptkdic or gtkdic, MySQL isn't needed; you can work with dictionary files directly.

libsdict uses Unicode, meaning that words and articles all are in UTF-8. There are two index levels, compression, and tools to convert from text files to .dct and vice versa.

Here are some key features of "libsdict":
Cross-platform, works under UNIX, Win32 and Symbian OS
Open Source, binary .dct format is also open and described in documentation
Unicode, all words and articles are stored in UTF-8
Two index levels: short and full
Compression for dictionary articles

Perl API ( module)
Simple, but powerful Jotter and Data applications
Compiler which helps you to create own dictionaries

Fixes for some dictionary types.
Version information was added to the DLL.
