Radheef data for download

I was moving the sites we had on our server when I found the tab-delimited file I used to import data into the Online Radheef I launched sometime ago. The data it contains is extracted from the original Radheef software published by the National Centre for Linguistics and Historical Research. There ARE mistakes in it contents - partly a reflection of the mistakes in the texts in the original Radheef and partly errors that had creeped in when I had extracted and formatted the data.

Anyway, I am putting up the data for grabs. It can be used for many a purpose - Dhivehi spelling checks, reverse word lookup by word definition etc. Feel inspired, make something useful and share!

- Download the Dhivehi Radheef in CSV format ( 907Kb, zip )

Have fun.

    Thanks mate. I had written the 'linguistics' people just weeks back requesting a digital copy of the radheef. As you would know, they're taking their sweet time getting back to me.

    Are you kidding? Man, you need to have Support for Asian languages installed. Its available on your xp cd rom. go to controlpanel > Regional options Click on Languages tab and check both options(if it is unchecked). Then hit apply (you will need xp cdrom). Restart your pc. that's all.

    What's the encoding? It appears to be ASCII, whereas the on-line Radheef is Unicode. Can you post an encoding converter?
