Introduction to Aspell

This package checks text for spelling errors; according to the project's site "Aspell is a Free and Open Source spell checker designed to eventually replace Ispell. It can either be used as a library or as an independent spell checker. Its main feature is that it does a superior job of suggesting possible replacements for a misspelled word than just about any other spell checker out there for the English language"

Short Descriptions

aspell is a utility that can function as an ispell -a replacement, as an independent spell checker, as a test utility to test out Aspell features, and as a utility for managing dictionaries.
ispell is a wrapper around aspell to invoke it in ispell compatible mode.
spell is a wrapper around aspell to invoke it in spell compatible mode.
aspell-import imports old personal dictionaries into Aspell.
precat decompresses a prezipped file to stdout.
preunzip decompresses a prezipped file.
prezip is a prefix delta compressor, used to compress sorted word lists or other similar text files.
prezip-bin is called by the various wrapper scripts to perform the actual compressing and decompressing.
pspell-config displays information about the libpspell installation, mostly for use in build scripts.
run-with-aspell is a script to help use Aspell as an ispell replacement.
word-list-compress compresses or decompresses sorted word lists for use with the Aspell spell checker.
libaspell.so contains spell checking API functions.
libpspell.so is an interface to the libaspell library. All the spell checking functionality is now in libaspell but this library is included for backward compatibility.
