Handy off-line thesaurus based on WordNet

Artha is a off-line English thesaurus with distinct features like: * hot-key press word look-up (select text on any window and press a preset hot-key for look-up) * regular expressions based search (broaden search using wild-cards like *, ?, etc.) * passive desktop notifications (of word definitions for uninterrupted work-flow) * spelling suggestions (when the exact spelling is vague/not known)

Once launched, it monitors for a preset hot-key combination. When some text is selected on any window and the hot-key is pressed, it pops-up with the word looked-up. Should the user prefer passive notifications, this can be done by enabling the notifications option.

When the term looked for is vague/not known, then either the search can be broadened with the use of regular expressions (*, ?, etc.) in the search string or spelling suggestions when a term is incorrect.

For regular expressions based search to work, wordnet-sense-index package is required.

Package version:1.0.2-1

1.0.2 (May 27, 2010)
	Finally, Artha is truly cross-platform now! A M$ Windows build is made with exactly the 
	same features available on Linux. No mismatch or feature cutdowns between the two versions. 
	To meet this requirement, the biggest hinderance was that libnotify or notification daemon 
	doesn't exist on Windows; so a libnotify shared library was written from scratch with pure 
	Win32 AP
