Description msterret 1999-11-16 07:48:35 UTC
Using the (L)ookup function of ispell with a wildcard, for example
bl*, should return a list of words in the dictionary beginning with bl.

Instead, the user is returned to the ispell menu.  This works correctly in
RedHat 5.2.

Comment 1 msterret 1999-11-19 06:40:59 UTC
The problem is caused by ispell looking for grep in /usr/bin instead of /bin.
I sent a message to with a patch that fixes it.

Comment 2 Michael K. Johnson 1999-11-19 22:09:59 UTC
Will be fixed in ispell-3.1.20-23 and later.

Thanks, msterret!

Comment 3 Michael K. Johnson 1999-12-01 21:16:59 UTC
Fixed in rawhide.
