My goal is to keep a personal glossary of terms for quick reference. Is there a lightweight tool that allows me to create, alphabetically sort and lookup words? For example I want to store some words:
- AAPL : aka Apple. A big company with more money than the government has debt.
- COMP : aka computer. A piece of technology with a keyboard.
- Apple Pie : A good pie you can eat. Popular in Texas.
Now if I type "AAPL" it brings me to the first line:
AAPL : aka Apple. A big company with more money than the government has debt.
I imagine I could write these out in a text file with some kind of delimiter to seperate lines (some definitions could span a couple lines or so) and use grep. This means I would have to sort the words alphabetically myself. And I'm not always on a Unix-based machine.
I want to be able to use this tool to create my glossary of terms and also be able to copy and paste the content into a corporate website as needed.
Is there a lightweight tool that can do this quickly?
OS: Windows or OS X (support for both preferred).
