Section: Debian Package Checker (1)
spellintian - simple spellchecker based on Lintian's data files
command parses one or more text files for spelling
mistakes. It uses the same spellcheck algorithm and data set as
If no file is specified on the command line, this command expects
its input on stdin.
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.
