Abstract: SPELL is a system of checking for spelling errors in
text files on the RSX-11M operating system. The program
SPELL does the checking and optionally may make changes,
while DICTMR formats a file for SPELL to use, DCTNRY is
a word looker upper that uses sends/receives with SPELL.
They are written in FORTRAN 77 except for certain file
access routines (random access block I/O to the
dictionary) and alphabetic manipulation routines that
are written in MACRO.
The program has been optimized as much as possible for
speed. In non-interactive mode a file will be produced
which contains all the words from the document that
SPELL could not find in its dictionary. In interactive
mode words can be replaced, added to the dictionary
(DICTMR will need to be run again), or simply ignored.
The dictionary has 40,000 words.
