       dicod is an implementation of DICT  server  (RFC  2229).  It  is  fully
       modular:   the   daemon   itself   (dicod)  provides  only  the  server
       functionality, but it knows  nothing  about  database  formats.  Actual
       searches  are  performed  by  functions supplied in loadable modules. A
       single module can serve one or more databases.
