Programmatic dictionary access?

Hi, is anything known about how to programmatically access the installed dictionaries, so I could support word lookup and translations within an app?

As far as i know, they're ebooks (i.e. basically html)

From which app do you want to have programmatically access?

I was hoping for e.g. a lipc based lookup service, that does all the work and returns the dictionary entry.

I thought about integrating something like that into gargoyle.

I don't know about such lipc command, IMHO is simplier if you use a your own dictionary, there are many free text-based ones that you can find on Internet. Or you can convert a Babylon or stardict dictionary through pyglossary
