       spell, hashmake, spellin, hashcheck - report spelling errors

       /usr/lib/spell/spellin n

       /usr/lib/spell/hashcheck spelling_list

       The  spell  command  collects  words  from the named files and looks them up in a spelling
       list. Words that neither occur among nor are derivable (by applying  certain  inflections,
       prefixes, or suffixes) from words in the spelling list are written to the standard output.

       If  there  are  no  file  arguments, words to check are collected from the standard input.
       spell ignores most troff(1), tbl(1), and eqn(1) constructs. Copies of all output words are
       accumulated in the history file (spellhist), and a stop list filters out misspellings (for
       example, their=thy-y+ier) that would otherwise pass.

       By default, spell (like deroff(1)) follows chains of included files (.so and .nx  troff(1)
       requests), unless the names of such included files begin with /usr/lib.

       The  standard  spelling	list  is  based on many sources, and while more haphazard than an
       ordinary dictionary, is also more effective in respect to proper names and popular techni-
       cal  words. Coverage of the specialized vocabularies of biology, medicine and chemistry is

       Three programs help maintain and check the hash lists used by spell:

       hashmake     Reads a list of words from the standard input and  writes  the  corresponding
		    nine-digit hash code on the standard output.

       spellin	    Reads  n  hash codes from the standard input and writes a compressed spelling
		    list on the standard output.

       hashcheck    Reads a compressed spelling_list and recreates the nine-digit hash codes  for
		    all the words in it. It writes these codes on the standard output.

       The following options are supported:

       -b	      Check British spelling. Besides preferring centre,  colour, programme, spe-
		      ciality, travelled, and so forth, this option insists upon  -ise	in  words
		      like standardise.

       -i	      Cause   deroff(1)  to  ignore  .so  and  .nx commands.  If deroff(1) is not
		      present on the system, then this	option is ignored.

       -l	      Follow the chains of all included files.

       -v	      Print all words not literally in the spelling list, as  well  as	plausible
		      derivations from the  words in the spelling list.

       -x	      Print every plausible stem, one per line, with = preceding each word.

       +local_file    Specify  a  set of words that are correct spellings (in addition to spell's
		      own spelling list) for each job. local_file is the name of a  user-provided
		      file  that  contains  a  sorted list of words, one per line. Words found in
		      local_file are removed from spell's output. Use sort(1) to order local_file
		      in ASCII collating sequence. If this ordering is not followed, some entries
		      in local_file might be ignored.

       The following operands are supported:

       file    A path name of a text file to check for spelling errors. If no  files  are  named,
	       words are collected from the standard input.

       See  environ(5)	for  descriptions  of the following environment variables that affect the
       execution of spell: LC_CTYPE, LC_MESSAGES, and NLSPATH.

       The following exit values are returned:

       0     Successful completion.

       >0    An error occurred.

       spell works only on English words defined in the U.S. ASCII codeset.

       Because copies of all output are accumulated in the spellhist file,  spellhist might  grow
       quite large and require purging.

       The spelling list's coverage is uneven. New installations might wish to monitor the output
       for several months to gather local additions.

       British spelling was done by an American.
