    Dictionary List Lookup

    Often times in the course of my work I have to lookup a long list of English words and in order to get a general idea of the definition. Right now I have to go to dictionary.com and type in each word one by one. I am looking to build a website to allow me to search multiple words all at once. Now I realize that words have multiple forms and multiple definitions but even if they could be laid out next to the word with some kind of deliminating mark that would work.

    I was reading a bit on CurL which seemed promising and I can get it it go to dict.org and return a definition but it is completely unformatted and I have no idea where to go from here.

    You can see what I have so far if you go to http://www.tnederlof.com/test/curl1.html

    Any coding examples or even just how I should start to go about this would be extremely helpful. I do not need to limit this to php if anyone has an idea in another realm.

    Thanks so much!

    If you just want to build this because you can't find an existing tool, look at http://www.wordassault.com/ - multiple word lookup seperated by semi colons.

    If reall you want to make a tool yourself, sorry, I have no idea!
