The spelling-suggest package

[Tags: bsd3, library, program]

Given a possibly-misspelled word, this tool spits out one or more properly-spelled words in order of likelihood of similarity.

This functionality is exported as a library via Text.SpellingSuggest (suggest) and as a command-line program thimk (an old joke)

Running the program thimk-makedb is an optional (but highly recommended) step to speed up lookups, permitting reasonable performance on enormous dictionaries by creating a precompiled SQlite database of phonetic codes for a dictionary.
