PalmOpenDic - is a PalmOS dictionary application that can be used to view (and search in) dictionaries which are stored in compressed form on your Palm Storage Memory or on an expansion card.
The whole application requires about 16K of storage memory, excluding databases, of course. On most Palm devices you will as well need SysZLib (which will need about 30 K extra space). Most users will already have it.
Dictionaries may include up to 15 languages (although 2 languages is the most common case) and can be hundreds of megabytes large. You can search for words in each language; PalmOpenDic will show you all the phrases that contain this word in this language.
It features command bar integration (which can be turned off if you prefer) and can be used as a target for the Plucker Plugin Interface. The dictionary files are not as compressed as pzdbView's files, but support a much faster search due to the built-in word indexes.
The UI does not have many features; selecting languages, searching for words, scrolling, showing translations and selecting/deleting databases is everything you get. It can optionally search for the current clipboard content if you prefer that.
The database format is a bit more complicated than the pzdbView database format. It is much harder to create than to parse (due to the indexes needed). There is a Java based converter available (that does not support all features of the database format yet), and a cmd file for converting dict.cc dictionaries.
