Description

From http://oxford.openguides.org/wiki/?Comments:

James: My spelling is bad I know. Is it possible to add some sort of spell check? Even if it's just a list of mispelled words so I can go back and re-edit the entry?

We could presumably add a config option for a system spellchecker's location (aspell? ispell? whatever) and, if that option is set and a parameter passed, run text through it before presenting the results. Or something.

Sounds like it could be a plugin. How about CGI::Wiki::Plugin::SpellChecker?.

This could be integrated when I write my CGI::Wiki::AutoPlugin? module (on Ivor's_To-Do )

Could the following code perhaps be modified to work as a CGI::Wiki::Plugin? http://search.cpan.org/~nachbaur/Apache-AxKit-Language-SpellCheck-0.03/

I'm not very familiar with CGI::Wiki, but the basics seem pretty similar. The state of spellcheck modules is pretty harsh, but the above module works pretty well.

This is something that should be dealt with by the browser. Firefox now has a spellcheck. So I'm closing this ticket.
