was designed by Abram Ring to interface with William Whitaker’s
, an electronic Latin dictionary.
will open any text file (.txt) or rich text file (.rtf) and allow the user to look up Latin words by double right-clicking on the word. A large library of free public domain Latin texts is included on the
CD; and, with the new Text Search feature, you can search this entire collection in a matter of seconds to find whole or partial words and phrases. Wildcard searches are also supported. The built-in
dictionary analyzes the form with all possible parsings (or grammatical descriptions) and gives a brief definition (for each lexical root). A second built-in dictionary has etymological information and displays macrons (long marks) for all headwords. The program also has a built-in ‘Latnlink’ feature, which allows you to create HTML versions of Latin text files, hyperlinked to your choice of several online Latin dictionaries. Finally, it provides integrated access to searchable online resources for Latin and Classics through a search box on the toolbar and convenient links to a number of other online resources. While the program is designed for Windows computers, the HTML files it produces may be viewed on any computer which has an Internet browser and may even be posted on the Internet for public access.
