     DESCRIPTION
          Proofr is an automatic proofreading system that runs modi-
          fied versions of 5 programs:

                  - checks for misspelled words.

                     - checks for rudimentary punctuation
                             errors.

                    - searches for consecutive occurrences of
                             the same word.

                  - locates wordy and/or misused phrases
                             and suggests alternatives.

                  - searches for split infinitives.

          Proofr is one of the programs run under the wwb(1) command.

          Options are:

               -s     produce a short summary version of proofr.

          Two options give information about the program:

               -flags print the command synopsis line (see above)
                      showing command flags and options, then exit.

               -ver   print the Writer's Workbench version number of
                      the command, then exit.

     NOTE
          If the user has a file called $HOME/lib/ddict, proofr will
          run dictplus so that phrases in ddict are located or
          ignored, as specified.  See diction(1), dictadd(1), dict-
          plus(1) for more information.

          If the user has a file called $HOME/lib/spelldict, proofr
          will run spellwwb so that words in spelldict are not listed
          as errors.  See spellwwb(1) and spelladd(1) for more infor-
          mation.
