oh - you have to sort -f! note "-f". illume's dictionary code ASSUMES the dict
file is sorted IGNORING CASE. that means:
your system linux dict is sorted INCLUDING case :) (capitals first, then
smalls). also remember.. make sure the file is UTF-8 encoded! remember UTF-8! :)
btw - not now, but a bit later, i am happy to accept contributions of dict
files to go into the core code and just be a default install - at least from
source (the .bb's for OE can split these dicts out into packages if you want)
