Looking for Spell Program

Post by Alan T Kran » Thu, 25 Sep 1997 04:00:00

Does anyone know where to find the 'spell' program you find on other
unix boxes? (I know that ispell is available but what about spell -
(hum the  spell script on the Sparcs says it is owned by at&t - maybe that
is why it's not available - sigh).



1. Looking for non-interactive spell program, like spell

Hi All,

I'm trying to develop a set of shell scripts to manage the web sites I
run.  One of the things I want to be able to do is make a report that
lists mispelled words.  With the old unix spell(1) you could do that
with a shell script, since it could just return you a list of suspicious
words.  Ispell and Aspell, however, are strictly interactive, and won't
do what I need.  Does anyone know if the old spell(1) is available
somewhere, or if there is a linux analogue.  Any help would be sincerely
and greatly appreciated.  Peace,
