spellintian - simple spellchecker based on Lintian's data files
SYNOPSISspellintian [--picky] [text-file...]
DESCRIPTIONThe spellintian command parses one or more text files for spelling mistakes. It uses the same spellcheck algorithm and data set as lintian.
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.
