Thanks for your reply, Teika.
What i'm saying is this code pick a word and search in dictionary. If
the focus window is Emacs, It can pick the word under cursor. But
other windows, it has to rely X selection. There are applications can
pick word in anywhere of screen. How do they achieve that?

I also doubt this idea,making a frontend of a command as a wm's
extension, is proper.

Sorry for confusing you. Here, I mean i didn't use all of sdcv's
function. For example, if I spelt a wrong word, sdcv can guess and
list some suggestion, but i found it's hard to implement.

I think picking word under mouse is better. Is it eazy to implement?
