SPELLTELL(1)                                         SPELLTELL(1)

     NAME
          spelltell - find the correct spelling of a word

     SYNOPSIS
          spelltell [ -flags ][ -ver ] [ wordpart | grep(1)-regular-
          expression ... ]

     DESCRIPTION
          The purpose of spelltell is to find the correct spelling of
          a word.  The input to the program can be either:

               1. any contiguous letters in the word that are known to
               be correct; or

               2. a grep(1) regular expression representing a cor-
               rectly spelled part of the word.

          Spelltell will print all words in its dictionary of commonly
          misspelled words that contain the input sequence.

          When spelltell is typed on a line with the input word(s), it
          will print the correct spelling(s) and then exit.  When
          spelltell is typed on a line by itself, the program ques-
          tions whether the user wants instructions, and prompts with
          ">" for word parts.  To quit, type "q" after the prompt.

          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.

     EXAMPLES
          1. The command:

               spelltell rece

          will print:

               precede
               preceding
               recede
               receiving
               etc.
          then exit.

          2. The command:

     SPELLTELL(1)                                         SPELLTELL(1)

               spelltell
               ^proce

          will print "proceed" and other words that begin with
          "proce," and will then prompt the user for another letter
          sequence or regular expression.
