News/release from EO
Hi, I'm Eo.
This is my first work on NDS, it is a reader for EDICT dictionnary format (Roman based alphabet languages/Japanese).
Even though there are already commercial japanese dictionnaries for DS (latest versions with shape recognition are quite impressive), I started to implement this reader for EDICT to have access to the dictionnary of the word processor I use on my PC: jwpce. There are a couple of projects in progress around using the same dict format and I really look forward to them for it seems that they will be far more finalized than mine...
It is now still a proof of concept for testing Edict file access and displaying kanjis. The interface is a bit "rudimentary"... I'm trying to find a good way to display the characters and give access to functions. To keep the distribution small (less than 1MB with 7Zip) and save on memory I had to do some sacrifices on CPU so it is not yet really responsive too.
Any suggestions or bug report are welcome.
If you have time, you learn Japanese and you are looking for open source tools go have a look at Jim Breen's Japanese Page (EDICT homepage): http://www.csse.monash.edu.au/~jwb/j_edict.html
