A very tiny quick dictionary look up script

Updated 11-16-2011 at 04:35 PM by the dsc

For a long time I had fantasdic set to respond to a desktop environment keybinding, it would then appear with the result for a query that was made through the clipboard. I don't recall how much of it was its own functionality and how much was some sort of wrap-around scriptery. I'm so used to use computer dictionaries in that way (instead of directly going to them and typing) that to me it's almost useless without this keybinding functionality.
