The spelling-suggest package

[Tags: bsd3, library, program]

thimk (an old joke) is a command-line spelling word suggestion tool. You give it a possibly-misspelled word, and it spits out one or more properly-spelled words in order of likelihood of similarity.

This functionality is also exported as a library via Text.SpellingSuggest (suggest)

There is an optional precompiled SQlite database of phonetic codes for the entire dictionary, created with thimk-makedb. This greatly speeds lookup, permitting reasonable performance on enormous dictionaries.
