I recently inherited a m105 Palm (Palm OS software 3.5.3) and thought it would be nice to have an Irish-English dictionary on it. I found a Palm data base (pdb file) for an Irish-English dictionary, but can't seem to find a simple program to run it. Is an m105 too old/weak to run a dictionary program? If not, do you know of any inexpensive (or free) dictionary program that could be loaded onto my machine?

Go raibh maith agat,

tháinig mé ar an méid seo a leanas:

O Donaill - Léirmheas

Niall O Donaill, 'Foclóir Gaeilge-Béarla'
O Donaill is - for the moment - the definitive Irish - English dictionary, published in 1977.

ISBN 1-85791-038-9 - the hardback edition.


... O Donaill is also available in a computerised version (DOS only) which allows it to be also used as an English-Irish dictionary.
The company who put the database of the dictionary together is

Gléacht corp.
box 1525
Minden, NV 89423 USA

The cost is around 70-80 US dollars and is currently only available as a
DOS program (IBM compats).
No Mac version - yet. If you own a Mac, you might be interested in some of EGT's Irish language software for the Macintosh. Check out Everson Gunn Teoranta at this url

Gach bua is beannacht.
