A script for a clipboard dictionary lookup tool
Authored by: BulbVivid on Nov 19, '03 06:43:20PM

Thanks y'all . . . like I said, I cobbled that script together with bits from a few that did pieces of what I want.

After seeing it here, I checked out OmniDictionary, but I'm a book editor, and we use specific dictionaries (namely Merriam-Webster) that I couldn't get to work with Omni, nor does it google what's in the clipboard (very handy for research).

But, mostly because I don't know what I'm doing and there seems to be a lack of Mozilla scripts to use as examples, I couldn't get it to work with Mozilla, and your examples do.

I appreciate the help and the replies. I was bummed that I couldn't get the script to work with Mozilla--that browser absolutely flies. Now my definitions won't have to wait even an instant to appear. Woo hoo!
