Original posting:

: For the past several years we have been running several NeXT machines at
: our site. Included with the NeXT is a very useful webster dictionary
: facility. However our NeXTs a slowly disappearing from service. Does
: anybody know if an application similar to webster is available either on
: Sun or IBM rs/6000?

I received only three responses to this posting: one me too, one pointer
to xwebster, and a suggestion to look at the Oxford English Dictionary
on CD. I pursued the CD option a bit further and discovered there are
several dictionaries out there - if you are in a DOS or Mac environment.
I was unable to find anything specifically for the Unix environment.
