       enchant -  a spell checker.

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

       Enchant is an ispell-compatible spellchecker.

       The following options are supported:

       -c		       List alternatives.

       -l		       List only the misspellings.

       -L		       Include the line number in the output.

       -v		       Prints the program's version.

       The following files are used by this application:

       enchant.ordering;       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:.	Currently
			       it  supports following backends: aspell, myspell, ispell,  uspell,
			       hspell. The comma-separated list may not include  spaces.  '*'  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

       See attributes(5) for descriptions of the following attributes:

       |      ATTRIBUTE TYPE	     |	    ATTRIBUTE VALUE	   |
       |Availability		     |SUNWgnome-spell		   |
       |Interface stability	     |Volatile			   |

       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  direc-
       tory for these dictionaries and a per-user directory.  The per-user directory takes prece-
       dence   if    it    is	found.	  Enchant   looks    for    Myspell    dictionaries    in
       $(datadir)/enchant/myspell and ~/.enchant/myspell.   Enchant looks  for	Ispell dictionar-
       ies in $(datadir)/enchant/ispell and  ~/.enchant/ispell. Enchant  looks	for  Uspell  dic-
       tionaries  in $(datadir)/enchant/uspell and ~/.enchant/uspell.

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