Jeff, here come with some of the modifications you pointed out. for the time being,
one can choose a normation class and a dictionary update class from combo boxes.
there are still some modifications left, i'll get back to you when the PropertiesEditor will be ready for use.

Hi Jeff i'm pleased to read you! Let me answer to some of your questions. At this stage of the development, i already created a properties editor that can be launched from the DictGen tab: We want all the tools unified.All the features you requested are already implemented except the ones for Dictionaryupdate and Normation classes.Know what?Yesterday i was setting up a dict and i skipped the normation and update classes in the props 'cause i couldnt remember the names.Your ideas is great, I'll implement it.

Hello everybody. I'am pleased to announce you that "THE" DictionaryForMIDs-Creator (DfM-Creator for short) is upcomming.
DictionaryForMIDs-Creator is a GUI Wrapper around these tools:

-DictdToDictionaryForMIDs (C) 2005 Gert Nuber (from the DfM Project)

DictdToDictionaryForMIDs uses JDictd from Ho Ngoc Duc (

JDictd is a set of Java programs that implement the Dictionary
Server Protocol (DICT) as specified in RFC 2229. It is used to access
dictionary definitions from a set of natural language dictionary
databases. The software (including binaries and source code)
is distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License.

-DictionaryGeneration (C) 2005, 2006 Gert Nuber (from the DfM Project)
-JarCreator(C) 2005 Mathis Karmann (from the DfM Project)
-BitmapFontGenerator (C) 2005 J2ME Polish
-BitmapFontToolkit (C) 2005 Sean Kernohan (from the DfM Project)

All the above mentionned tools were modifed by me to make them fit
in the DictionaryForMIDs Creator. The modifications are major.
Please bear in mind that only the modified versions work with
DictionaryForMIDs Creator.

I've been working on DfM-Creator for at least 3 months. What we have now is not ready for use or even ready to be uploaded in the DfM svn repository. I made this post here to let you know that it will be available in the svn repo of DfM and available for download (binary) in a few months.

DfM-Creator is under active developpement, i hope the result will please the users of DictionaryForMIDs. With DfM-Creator, converting a dictd dictionary, generating a DfM dictionary with DictionaryGeneration, creating the jar file containing the generated dictionary files and creating a bitmap font is as pleasant as playing a video game. the GUI is intuitive and everything is made to simplify the processes mentionned above.

Best regards,

Hello Gert, here's a screenshot of the DictionaryForMIDs Builder i'm working on. I just wanted to post you a screenshot so that you know i'm on it. for the time being, i only designed the graphical user interface, it remains all the hard work lol. Anyway, i'm intending to merge all the build tools  but for the time being, i only designed the GUI for DictdToDictionaryForMIDs, will do the rest when i'll be finished with the dictd converter. i had to choose between designing it with lazarus and hardcoding it by hand using java, finally i came out with a pretty satisfying solution: do some of the job by hardconding, and do the reste of the design with the Netbeans IDE GUI Builder. hope this won't be a problem. I still got so much work to do, actually i don't think the DFM Builder will be ready before 2 or 3 months.

I got it Gert! but since i want my first shot to be the definitive i'll take a little longer to produce it. For the time being, i'm working on the DictdToDictionaryForMIDs-GUI. i already wrote the algorithm/pseudocode. only thing left is hard coding into java. I think it will be nicer to merge it also inside the DictionaryForMIDs-Builder. I saw the specifications and i'll do my best to meet the requirements you told about.

Gert you're right i myself thought of it like that. it's better to have everything written in java so i'll take that option. it's going to take a little bit longer though, but i guess that will be okay for you because what's important is to have nice stuff in the end huh? thanks for your time and advice. I'll get back to you as soon as i get something cool and nice and ready for beta test.

Hi Gert that's okay don't worry take your time ok? i've been busy too lately, unfortunately i didn't have enough time to work on that, as soon a possible i'll take some tutorials on version control systems and i'll be able to do all you told me about. i'm trying to work on a GUI version of the dictionary converter, it would be great if i could combine pascal-lazarus to java and do that because i'm really better with pascal, i'm learning java so if i have to do it in java it's going to take a bit longer...

Hello! DictdToDictionaryForMIDs-2.4.0-Beta is out.

-Now the program is interactive but it is still a command line program.
-No longer required to download the sources in order to set the options up and compile...
-Still uses jDictd from the jDictd project but now it also uses TextIO from Bruce Eck - LGPL compatible licence.

You can download the jar and it is ready for use :-)

-Source distribution includes sources of jDictd and TextIO.

Waiting for Gert to put a link to make it downloadable.
