NAME
       Search::Dict, look - search for key in dictionary file

SYNOPSIS
           use Search::Dict;
           look *FILEHANDLE, $key, $dict, $fold;


DESCRIPTION
       Sets file position in FILEHANDLE to be first line greater than or equal
       (stringwise) to $key.  Returns the new file position, or -1 if an error
       occurs.

       The flags specify dictionary order and case folding:

       If $dict is true, search by dictionary order (ignore anything but word
       characters and whitespace).

       If $fold is true, ignore case.
