Hey !
I hasnt been very understood (did I use another English than you ?, no matter ;-))

I'd like to see one reasonable english dictionary in Std, say ienglish, and the other :
ibritish, iamerican, iaustralian, iirishenglish, iscottenglish, ipigenglish, ipolishenglish,
ichinessenglish etc. in Opt

And Im asking again if korn shell is so widely used to put it to Std.
I think Opt is reasonable place for it.

Happy new year 19:0
