DICTL(1) General Commands Manual DICTL(1)NAME
dictl - wrapper script for dict that permits using utf-8 encoded dictionaries on a terminal that is not utf-8 aware.
dictl [OPTIONS] [word]
dictl calls dict with the arguments given on the command line. dictl takes the value of the environment variable DICTL_CHARSET as the
user's preferred character set. If this variable is empty, dictl attempts to determine the character set to be used from the output of the
Arguments passed to dictl including word are converted from the user's preferred character set to server's character set specified by
DICTL_SERVER_CHARSET variable (utf-8 if it is unset), and passed to dict. The server's output from dict is converted to the user's pre-
ferred character set.
NOTE: Because iconv omits characters from output that are invalid,
recode -f is used for character set conversions by default. If you prefer iconv, set DICTL_USE_ICONV variable to non-empty string. If you
want to use konwert, set DICTL_USE_KONWERT to non-empty string.
Because recode, iconv and konwert do not support conversion to or from the "C" or "POSIX" locales, it is recommended that all users whose
locale is "C" or "POSIX", set DICTL_CHARSET to "latin1" (ISO_8859-1).
dictl accepts all dict options as described in dict(1).

/etc/dictionaries-common/words is a symbolic link to a /usr/share/dict/<language> file. /usr/share/dict/words is a symbolic link to

wordlist(8) for more information.
The directory /usr/share/dict can contain word lists for many languages, with name of the language in English, e.g., /usr/share/dict/french
and /usr/share/dict/danish contain respectively lists of French and Danish words if they exist. Such lists should be coded using the ISO
8859-1 character set encoding.

The words lists are not specific, and may be generated from any number of sources.
The system word list used to be /usr/dict/words. For compatibility, software should check that location if /usr/share/dict/words does not
