I've chosen "Community Dictionary".  Run with it or change it as you 
like.  Better still, perhaps create a forum thread so the conversation 
is less ephemeral.

I used the wrong term with "files".  The actual files on disk at SQLite. 
  The API (Dictionary) data is at:

<livecode>/Documentation/resources/data/api/api.sqlite

Somewhere a couple months ago I posted the IDE handlers for obtaining 
the array of data associated with a keyword.

I don't recall it offhand, but easily findable by exploring the Script 
Editor's "Documentation" pane.

The array itself is quite nicely constructed, with the keyword, its 
params, param types, definition, examples, see also, and more all 
accessible within it.
