I talk about
and the shell script (and elisp program) to access it.

I'm not completely sure, how this could work (neither with perl nor
with other programs). Searching for "Straße" is trivial, but what
about a search for "Strasse"? Maybe the program should search for
"Stra(ß|ss|sz)e" (RegExp) in this case and when finding a match do a
reverse check.

This isn't trivial because there are words like "Massen" vs. "Maßen"
(the latter one should be written as "Maszen" when using 7bit)...
