    It’s not really necessary to install another package to do this. Here is the .bashrc function I use to get essentially the same facility:

    # command line wikipedia lookup
    wikid() {
    links -dump “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/$1” | less
    }

    You can change “links” to whatever text-based browser your Linux/Unix system has on it.
