What Is Libspellcheck?

Libspellcheck is a statically linked library for Linux (and other *NIX OSes such as FreeBSD) that lets developers check the spelling of user input.


The new location for the default dictionary "english.dict" in version 1.20 is not /usr/etc/english.dict, but rather, /etc/english.dict.

If you are compiling version 1.25 (the development version), please run ./ and not ./configure, unless you want to install to a custom prefix. In both cases, you need to read the README file.

What Is Spellcheck?

Spellcheck is a command-line frontend to the libspellcheck library. It lets you check the spelling of words from the command line. Find more here: Spellcheck.
