Whitaker's Words Latin Dictionary

Here it is. It's based on the source files I used years ago for my AbsoluteWord Latin dictionary for PalmOS.

Whitaker explicitly says in the source data that one can redistribute and sell as long as one notifies him. I sent an email to the address he said to use, and it bounced, because he died a couple of years ago, which I take it makes the notification rule moot.

Thank you. I have been searching for a larger latin dictionary for months!

I would love to use this dictionary for koreader, too.
For that it has to be in Stardict format. I can turn text UTF-8 tab separated lines into Stardict, but I have no idea how to convert this mobi.prc file. Any ideas?

I've checked it against the link given by Jellby and that textfile DICTPAGE.txt contains 39925 entries against pruss' 74405 entries.

Comparing
Code:
#volo, velle, volui, -  V                                                                            [XXXAX] :: wish, want, prefer; be willing, will;
#volo, volare, volavi, volatus  V (1st)                                                              [XXXAX] :: fly;
#volo, volonis  N (3rd) M                                                                            [XWXEC] :: volunteers (pl.); (in the Second Punic War);
to
Code:
volo N\nvolo, volonis\nN 3 1 M\nvolunteers (pl.)\n(in the Second Punic War)
volo V I\nvolo, velle, volui, -\nV 6 2\nwish, want, prefer\nbe willing, will
volo V II\nvolo, volare, volavi, volatus\nV 1 1\nfly
volonis N\nSee volo, volonis
it appears that pruss' version contains a lot of indirect references. Which is preferable for automated lookup in stardict.

The \n symbols are mine as part of the preformatting for a Stardict conversion.
I (1)converted the prc-file to a txt-file using calibre. (2) Search&Replaced symbols with notepad++ and (3) changed the first whitespace or comma to a tab with Excel. Then (5) copy&paste back into notepad++ to (6) convert to unix style EOF symbols and convert to UTF-8. Finally (7) I compiled an stardict dictionary with stardict editor.

The result is here.

@pruss Thank you!
@Markismus I only wanted to say thank you - it's extremely useful to me, an I would have no idea myself how to proceed or is it even doable at all.
