Spell checker

GNU Aspell is a spell checker that can be used either as a library or as an independent spell checker. It does a much better job of coming up with possible suggestions than other English language spell checkers. Other technical enhancements over Ispell include shared memory for dictionaries and intelligent handling of personal dictionaries when more than one Aspell process is open.
