NAME

tkispell - Perl/Tk user interface for ispell.

SYNPOSIS

tkispell [<filename>]

DESCRIPTION

Tkispell is a Perl/Tk graphical user interface to GNU ispell.

Tkispell opens the file given as a command line argument. The "Select File...," button also allows users to select a file.

The, "Check...," button begins the spell check process. The listing at the top of the window shows unrecognized words, and the listing in the middle of the window shows the alternative spellings provided by ispell.

Clicking the, "Dismiss," button exits the program, after asking if the program should save the spell-checked file and the replacement words in the user's personal dictionary if necessary.

The entry box at the lower right contains replacement text for misspelled words. The text in the entry is either a selection from the word guesses or a word entered by the user.

Buttons on the right side of the window select options for replacing possibly misspelled words.

Accept

Accept the word and continue to the next unrecognized word.

Add

Add the unrecognized word to the personal dictionary.

Replace

Replace the misspelled word.

Replace All

Replace all occurrences of the misspelled word.

PERSONAL DICTIONARY

Tkispell uses ispell's personal dictionary naming conventions: $HOME/.ispell_<language> or $HOME/.ispell_default if the $LANG environment variable is, "C," or is not set.
