A handy off-line thesaurus based on WordNet

Artha is a handy English thesaurus having distinct features like look up on a global hot key press, passive notifications of a selected text's definitions, suggestions for misspelled words, etc. Once launched, it sits on the system tray monitoring for a pre-set hot key combination. When some text is selected on any window and the hotkey is pressed, it pops-up with the word looked-up. Should the user prefer passive notifications over the app. popping-up, this can be done by enabling the notifications option.

Artha is written from scratch in pure C using GTK+, with WordNet as it database corpus. It may be used as an advanced replacement for the proprietary WordWeb in GNU/Linux environments.
