NAME
       Enchant - a spellchecker

SYNOPSIS
       enchant [-a] [-l] [-L] [-v]

DESCRIPTION
       Enchant is an ispell-compatible spellchecker.

   OPTIONS
       -a     List alternatives.

       -l     List only the misspellings.

       -L     Include the line number in the output.

       -v     Prints the program's version.

ENCHANT ORDERING FILE
       Enchant	has  a	global	and a per-user ordering file named enchant.ordering.  It lets the
       user specify which spelling backend to use for individual languages in the case	when  you
       care  which  backend  gets  used. The global file is located in $(datadir)/enchant and the
       per-user file is located in ~/.enchant.	The per-user file takes precedence, if found.

       The ordering file takes the form language_tag:<comma-separated list of spelling backends>.
       I  am  currently aware of the following backends: aspell, myspell, ispell, uspell, hspell,
       voikko, and zemberek. '*' is used to mean "use this ordering  for  all  languages,  unless
       instructed otherwise." For example:

       *:aspell,myspell,ispell
       en:aspell,myspell,ispell
       en_UK:myspell,aspell,ispell
       fr:myspell,ispell:aspell

DIRECTORIES IMPORTANT TO ENCHANT
       Unless  configured otherwise, Enchant's Myspell, Ispell, and Uspell backends will look for
       dictionaries in directories specific  to  Enchant,  and	will  not  use	your  system-wide
       installed  dictionaries.  This  is  for pragmatic reasons since many distributions install
       these dictionaries into different locations.

       Like the enchant.ordering file described above, Enchant looks in the global directory  for
       these  dictionaries  and a per-user directory.  The per-user directory takes precedence if
       it is found.  Enchant looks for Myspell	dictionaries  in  $(datadir)/enchant/myspell  and
       ~/.enchant/myspell.   Enchant  looks  for Ispell dictionaries in $(datadir)/enchant/ispell
       and ~/.enchant/ispell.  Enchant looks for Uspell dictionaries in $(datadir)/enchant/uspell
       and ~/.enchant/uspell.

       Packagers and users may wish to make symbolic links to the system-wide dictionary directo-
       ries. Or, preferably, use the --with-myspell-dir, --with-ispell-dir, and --with-uspell-dir
       'configure' arguments.
