This is a large Tibetan/English text file with one entry per line. It has 65,300 entries and is 4.6 MB of data. It is very extensive, tho certainly lacking in purity (see below). It comes with 2 shareware search engines (sr.exe/sr32.exe and Search32.exe) that do not provide much flexibility and can easily be misused, yielding a corrupted data file. This product definitely would benefit from a better engine. The data file is not encoded in any way, so users can modify it any way they wish (provided they have an editor than can handle 4.6 MB of data!). The following is taken from the readme.txt file that comes with the product:
Erik Schmidt announces the new version of the Tibetan-English Dictionary
of Buddhist Culture from Rangjung Yeshe.
It is available on CD ROM and includes superfast searching software for
Windows 95 by Gerry Wiener. Also included is Jim Valby's own Tibetan-English
Dictionary for DOS, Leonardo Gribaudo's database format which displays the
