Aiksaurus is a set of libraries and applications which provide a thesaurus currently English only, based on Guttenburg’s Moby thesaurus using native GUI on several platforms UNIX GTK+ & Qt, Win32 & MacOSX Cocoa. The core library itself is platform-independent. The principal language is C++, with some use of Cocoa/ObjC++; wrappers are provided for C and Cocoa/ObjC.
Aiksausus plugins exist for AbiWord on UNIX and Win32; the library is also used by Lyx; and the new Cocoa port provides a MacOSX NSService hook so that Safari and other such applications can use this thesaurus without Aiksaurus-specific development.
