Description Chris Siebenmann 1999-04-22 03:45:13 UTC
The traditional Unix spell command is willing to spellcheck
a file (or files) given as the argument(s). However, the
spell script supplied with the ispell RPM will always
attempt to spellcheck standard input and ignores any
filenames given as arguments (or at least doesn't spell
check them).
