Is there a publicly available API?



I use Pleco on my iPhone all the time to look up words bidirectionally between Chinese and English. It is by far the best (actually the only decent) Chinese dictionary software that I have used. There are plenty of others but they are not thorough, and are often missing information.

I want to be able to get the same quality of data programatically for my own purposes, without hunting down all of the various dictionaries (free and paid) that Pleco sources its data from, and having to architect a system that searches all of them. Pleco already does that. It is for this reason that I was wondering if Pleco has a public search API.
