Description Mark Cornick 2003-01-29 17:38:08 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030120

Description of problem:
aspell offers several alternative modes for checking spelling, such as an email
mode and an HTML/SGML mode. The HTML/SGML mode does not operate in the version
shipped in Phoebe.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Obtain an HTML/SGML file of some sort. Call it testfile.html
2. aspell --mode=sgml -c testfile.html
3. Await results.

Actual Results:  No results. aspell produces no output or feedback of any kind.

Expected Results:  aspell should start its regular spell check routine, such as
one would see if not using HTML/SGML mode (aspell --mode=none -c testfile.html)

Additional info:

bug 80757 suggests upgrading aspell. I can report that aspell-0.50.3 fixes this bug.

Comment 1 Chris Ricker 2003-02-01 01:14:22 UTC
I second this as well.  aspell 0.33 -c -H fails miserably when checking XML
(looks like a recursion loop infinitely allocating memory), and aspell 0.5x -c
-H works

Bug 80757 and Bug 77617 are basically the same bug as this

aspell will be upgraded in the next release
