RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for search::dict (redhat section 3pm)

Search::Dict(3pm)		 Perl Programmers Reference Guide		Search::Dict(3pm)

       Search::Dict, look - search for key in dictionary file

	   use Search::Dict;
	   look *FILEHANDLE, $key, $dict, $fold;

	   use Search::Dict;
	   look *FILEHANDLE, $params;

       Sets file position in FILEHANDLE to be first line greater than or equal (stringwise) to
       $key.  Returns the new file position, or -1 if an error occurs.

       The flags specify dictionary order and case folding:

       If $dict is true, search by dictionary order (ignore anything but word characters and
       whitespace).  The default is honour all characters.

       If $fold is true, ignore case.  The default is to honour case.

       If there are only three arguments and the third argument is a hash reference, the keys of
       that hash can have values "dict", "fold", and "comp" or "xfrm" (see below), and their cor-
       reponding values will be used as the parameters.

       If a comparison subroutine (comp) is defined, it must return less than zero, zero, or
       greater than zero, if the first comparand is less than, equal, or greater than the second

       If a transformation subroutine (xfrm) is defined, its value is used to transform the lines
       read from the filehandle before their comparison.
