What is DAVAR 2.4:

DAVAR 2.4 is a free hebrew dictionary/lexicon, running on Windows95/98/ME/NT/W2000/XP platform. It can be a helpful tool for study of Old Testament language as well as modern ivrit. Development of program is finished - if you need enhanced version suitable for Scripture studies - then look to DAVAR3 version

DAVAR 2.4 works in two modes:

Dictionary mode:
You can open three bidirectional dictionaries (files *.he2, *.2he). This is word->word translation. You can mark each record by one char, e.g. "R" for "root" and then use this as filter. It's possible to merge dictionaries and use function "Erase duplicate words" if necessary.

Lexicon mode:
It's way how to be near to "paper book". You can open three lexicons (*.lex), always from hebrew language. For each hebrew word, you have about 30 kB of space for explanation.
Generally, this space is divided to heading and description part. Heading can hold 0-10 items, e.g. "Word: ", "Strong: ", "Gramm.:" of mixed hebrew text. In description part, you have explanation of word, using, examples. It's also possible to mix english/hebrew text.
You can use fulltext search in lexicon by hebrew or english key. It is possible to specify which part of lexicon ("Word", "Strong",...) will be searched.

Davar can open six book files of Hebrew or non-Hebrew texts. Is is possible to browse texts, synchronize view and perform fulltext search in book. There is navigation window in toolbar for easy move in book. You can search for Hebrew or non-Hebrew text, use '*' and '?' for wildcard search and use options "Match whole words" and "Ignore Hebrew vocalization". The results of the search are displayed in results window, matched pattern is colored.
