Spell checker

A spell checking program which prints each misspelled word on a line of its own. It is designed as a clone of the standard Unix 'spell' program, and implemented as a wrapper for 'Ispell." Spell accepts its arguments as a list of files to read from. Within that list, the magical file name "-" causes spell to read from the standard input. In addition, when called with no file name arguments, Spell assumes that it should process standard input.
