Babylon.

"Babylon is a powerful information tool that instantly provides relevant information, translations & conversions for any word or value you click on."
I use it a lot, but the problem is that it is only for Windows. :(

Therefore, I've created a Perl script for Linux that can do (almost) the same.
The difference being that my script get's its values from the site itself, not the protocol.
The sites' search feature is limited, but free (and still very extensive).

You can check out the files here:
files/babylon.pl
files/babylon (Edit the path in this file, then chmod 755 and put it in a bin directory.)

Hope it helps anyone, feedback is appreciated. :)
(Note; I initially created this for personal use, so some things might not work or you might need to edit it.)
