Sample file for supported DSL features

Postby MaximeB » Fri Aug 26, 2011 8:33 am

Hi,

GoldenDict does not support all DSL features yet. I have written a small DSL file that shows which features are supported and how to use them.
You can put is with your other dictionaries, and see its contents by searching for "sample entry".
BTW, I have tried to upload it as an attachment, but I get a message "The extension dsl is not allowed". I tried to change the extension to .txt with the same result.

Code: Select all
#NAME "Sample dictionary"
#INDEX_LANGUAGE "English"
#CONTENTS_LANGUAGE "English"

sample entry
example
sample {unsorted part} card
{the }sample headword
   I love this \~. • I love this ~. (The tilde replaces the first headword.)
   {{This is a comment which
   should be invisible.}}

What features exactly?

The biggest not yet supported feature I'm currently aware of is the sub-entries (the ones with @-sign). Everything else should be almost 100% compatible.

Actually, this exactly *must* be visible, since the brackets are quoted, which means to insert them in the output as-is, not treat them as comment delimiters.

Such lines are not 100% correct DSL. And the Lingvo DSL compiler will complain about them. You've quoted the first bracket '[', but didn't quote the second one. Instead of \[u] one should always write \[u\] (in cases when you'd like to treat it as literal content, not as tags).

MaximeB wrote: [c cornflowerblue]cornflowerblue[/c]
[c lightgrey]lightgrey[/c]

Official Lingvo DSL Compiler doesn't support these colors, use cornflower and lightgray instead.

But thanks for the file, it can be very useful for those who just starting to create their dictionaries in DSL format. Now we have a topic to discuss DSL features. :)

I have just tried things and kept only what worked. I do not remember the rest.
This file is just meant as a sort of help file that you can see inside GoldenDict.

The entry is meant to be seen as a GoldenDict dictionary entry.
In GoldenDict, on the right side, you see what you have to write in the dictionary entry. On the left side, after the bullet, you see the final result.
(The brackets are escaped on the right side so that GoldenDict displays the literal bracket and text.)

Understood. Once you encounter any DSL incompatibility in the future, please don't hesitate to file a bug here:
https://github.com/goldendict/goldendict/issues

MaximeB wrote:This file is just meant as a sort of help file that you can see inside GoldenDict.

Indeed, very helpful, thanks! I'm starting to think that maybe we should create a small repository with some small sample DSL dictionary, fully functional and showing the typical usage of DSL tags, etc. Your file is an excellent start for that :)

Ah, indeed.

And here it is, a bit cleaned-up and improved here and there sample DSL file, as well as additional abbr file (abbreviations) and the icon.

https://github.com/VVSiz/SampleDSL

Let me know if something is missing and I"ll be updating the sample accordingly.

Which features exactly? Put up or shut up. There are two features it doesn't support: subentries and includes. Everything else is a bug. Report it properly.

Why do you have to be so aggressive?
