+/* A GNU dicod configuration file for running a local copy of the GNU
+ * Collaborative International Dictionary of English.
+ *
+ * Installation instructions:
+ *
+ * 1. Unpack the GCIDE dictionary;
+ * 2. Copy this file to a directory where you keep your local configuration
+ * files (/etc or /usr/local/etc are usual choices).
+ * 3. Replace the word GCIDE_PATH in the "handler" statement below with
+ * the path to the gcide-0.51 dicrectory. You can omit this step and use
+ * the -D option instead:
+ * 4. Start dicod as follows:
+ * dicod --config /path/to/gcide.conf
+ * If you skipped the step 3, supply the -D option with the acual path to
+ * the dictionary. For example, if you copied gcide.conf to /etc and
+ * unpacked GCIDE to /usr/local, then:
+ * dicod --config /etc/gcide.conf -D GCIDE_PATH=/usr/local
+ *
+ * The server will listen on localhost (127.0.0.1) port 2628.
+ *
+ * 5. Access the dictionary using dico (a GNU dictionary command line
+ * utility), or another dictionary client program (such as Kdict or
+ * the like).
