NAME
enchant - a spell checker.
SYNOPSIS
enchant [-a] [-l] [-L] [-v] [filename]
DESCRIPTION
Enchant is an ispell-compatible spellchecker.
OPTIONS
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.
FILES
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

NOTES
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 direc- tory. 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 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. Written by Jeff Cai, Sun Microsystems Inc., 2008. SunOS 5.11 30 Jul 2008 enchant(1)
