This class can be used to retrieve the definition of words from a remote dictionary server.

It uses the cURL library to make a word lookup request using the DICT protocol defined in RFC 2229.

The word definitions retrieved from the server are returned in an array. The number of definitions that is returned may be restricted to a given limit.
