NAME

spellintian – simple spellchecker based on Lintian’s data files

SYNOPSIS

spellintian [–picky] [text-file…]

DESCRIPTION

The spellintian command parses one or more text files for spelling
mistakes. It uses the same spellcheck algorithm and data set as
lintian.

If no file is specified on the command line, this command expects its
input on stdin.

OPTIONS

–picky
Also use the “picky” data set on top of the regular spelling data
set. The “picky” data set also includes a lot of capitalization
related rules (like spelling “Debian” with an uppercase “D”).

Note however that these checks can have false positives. As an
example, consider the following those uses of Python “the python
binary” (e.g. /usr/bin/python) and “the Python language”. The
–picky option will unconditionally flag the use of “python” in the
first case as bad despite being correct.

-h, –help
Display usage information and exit.

–version
Print a version banner and exit.
