dictionary address
Authored by: BulbVivid on Nov 24, '03 08:53:44AM

The URL can be changed to whatever you want to use. I use M-W's subscription-based Unabridged Dictionary, so that URL won't do you much good unless you pay for the service.

The URL for M-W's Collegiate Dictionary is: "http://www.m-w.com/cgi-bin/dictionary?book=dictionary&va=" (the actual URL doesn't use quotes, though they're used in the script). You kind of have to experiment with whatever site you want to use to see how their URL works during searches. Though I don't know why (I'm sure there's a reason), most end with "=" followed by the search terms. For example, to adapt the script to use the AltaVista search engine, change the URL to: "http://www.altavista.com/web/results?q=".

Good Luck,
Jason
