I think everything is possible Smilie Can you let me know how do you plan to deploy it ? Some TCL/Expect script can do the work, I think. I just tested a little bit, but I don't really like the suggestions, so I wouldn't take the risk, If I were you.

I thought deploy it by a shell script. The problem is that the interface of ispell isn't a command line interface and all the time I have to press a key to validate all corrections. This is what I want to automatize, a script that always "press" a key in the ispell interface. How? I don't know... Smilie Please help me!!Smilie

Since I don't know your OS and version of ispell, can you please show me a desired output or how a session should look like ? The best way, or at least I can think of, is using expect, which is suitable for automating tasks by avoiding user interactions.

The OS is Ubuntu 8.10 and the iSpell version is the last, the 3.3. I want to do that, automatice the user interaction, I'm going to see the Expect software. Thanks Smilie
