I have a problem with dictionaries: some of them have a .idx files and some a .index file.

.idx files are not human readable while index files are human readable.

.idx files and .index files work with goldendict and stardict and unix dictd service, while .idx files work only with stardict and goldendict.

I need to have dictionaries with .idx files working with unix dictd service, is there a way to convert .idx files into .index files?

Or is there a way to have .idx files working directly with unix dictd service?

Thank you.
