I'm looking for a thesaurus (and perhaps also a dictionary) of Portuguese in machine-readable form. In other words, I don't want an off-the-shelf Portuguese electronic dictionary with which I have to use the regular user interface. Rather, I need one where I can access the raw data directly. I know that I can access this type of information via web-based dictionaries, but it would be easier to do it with a local resource on my own machine.
Eventually, the thesaurus (and perhaps dictionary as well) will be converted to relational database form, so the closer it is to that form already, the better. Also, I'm willing to pay for the resource, though hopefully it won't be too much, since this will be strictly for non-commercial use.
Thanks in advance.
