Fool's Lexicon is a simple client for the EDICT
Japanese dictionary and the CEDICT Chinese dictionaries created
by Jim Breen and Paul Denisowski, respectively. These dictionaries
may be freely downloaded and used on a variety of platforms. For
more information about EDICT and CEDICT, see the help files accompanying
this application or their respective homepages listed below.
The EDICT and CEDICT files from April, 2001 are
included in the download of this application. These are not owned,
created, or expanded by The Fool's Workshop. They are distributed
according to their own licenses which I recommend all users inspect.
See the links to these license files below.
Fool's Lexicon is a completely free application,
created with REALBasic¨. It is also open source under the GNU license.
The original source code is available
in various formats, including an uncompiled project file. Feel free
to modify, improve, and redistribute this application but bear in
mind that the dictionaries themselves are governed by a seperate
license which deserve attention. Also, read the GNU license carefully
as you must pass on all of the freedoms you benefit from to the
users of your own modified application.
