hi,

i'm looking to make a dictionary, or rather a math dictionary and would like to have any input on some good software that would be able to do this.
first prize would be if it was free but all suggestions are good.

and maybe i'm dreaming but would like it to be able to take in words and definitions then automatically split the word list into pages. AND if we go back and add a word, the program would then automaticaly adjust all pages accordingly.

thanks in advance :thumbsup:

I am not sure precisely what your requirements are. Does the programme perform a search of something, understand what it is looking for, and then automatically include it in the dictionary? What form(s) would the potential output to take (how would it be used)?
If you are willing to manually imput the word and the definition, and are not overly fussy about the output's form, for example, any database or spreadsheet application, if properly set up, should be able to hold these two fields, sort the data alphabetically upon demand, and then format the information to a second file or to a document for end-use.

Regards,
John
