Aspell: Command line spell check


Spell check is a “feature” we all take for granted. No matter where we are typing – in a document, on a blog, in an email…we all know our spell check will be there to take care of us. But what do we do about those files that are not created or edited in tools without spell checkers? I don't know about you, but I create a lot of files in applications that have no spell check. For those files I invoke the power of aspell.
Aspell is an interactive, command-line spell checking tool. It's really easy to use, reliable, and flexible. You can even use aspell to generate word lists for tools like password cracking tools (and we'd only use those types of tools when we have lost our own passwords right!). In this article I will show you how install and use the command line tool aspell.
