Announcement: Spelling services

Tim Felgentreff
Hi

Once upon a time, John M. McIntosh built a spellchecker plugin for the
MacVM and there was a fileout that added a spelling service class to use
it from Squeak. We have added code to provide the same API (for now) to
windows and linux users that have ispell (or a compatible program, like
aspell) installed on their systems using system callouts.

A metacello configuration is available from the MetacelloRepository on
Squeaksource, ConfigurationOfSpellingServices.

The development repository is at
http://www.hpi.uni-potsdam.de/hirschfeld/squeaksource/SpellingServices.html,
the repo has global read+write, so if anybody finds this useful and has
changes, feel free to commit to that repository.

-Tim

Thanks for making this.

I just submitted some changes so this project works on 64 bit linux
(Ubuntu) and Pharo-1.3

I'm happy to take another look at it if you don't like some of my changes.



Paul
