oed2dict is a set of scripts that convert the full Oxford English Dictionary v2 (CD-ROM version 3.0) into the jargon and DICT file formats. These can then be consulted with any DICT compatible dictionary lookup program. The resulting DICT files are much faster to use when compared with the proprietary program from the original distribution, and are significantly smaller, with the whole database only weighing around 190MiB.
