Flyspell is an Emacs minor mode performing on-the-fly spelling checking. This spawns a single Ispell process and checks each word. The default flyspell behavior is to highlight incorrect words.
DocumentationTo enable Flyspell minor mode, type:
M-x flyspell-mode <RET>. This applies only to the current buffer.
To enable Flyspell in text representing computer programs, type: M-x flyspell-prog-mode <RET>. In that mode, only text inside comments is checked.
N.B. Flyspell is compatible with TeX editing.
