    Define word via bash


    Is there a bash command or somthing where I can have it define a word for me, and I can grab the output and print it to a file? Or any command that can define words for me?

    E.G.

    $ define forums
    >a place to talk with your peers
    $

    or somthing along those lines.

    From memory there are one or two utilities that act as command line dictionaries. One of them is called Magic-Dic! Am I the only person out there who finds this highly amusing?

    Actually the above programme is mainly used for translation.

    EDIT: Also check this out. I haven't had a chance to look at much of the above very closely, so Google is your friend.
