I - click on a word to get an English definition) might also be interested in The Caesar Machine 3.0, which covers De Bello Gallico, Bks. II - V. Like version 2.0, this teaching machine is written in Visual Basic and operates under Windows -- you just mouse-click on a word in the text and the dictionary entry appears in English below the text.

The Caesar Machines incorporate search routines for the body of the text and the body of the dictionary, as well as for dictionary entries. Version 2.0 and the original Caesar
Machine (for DOS, also runs under Windows) are still available at the same place.
