Binary package “ispell” in ubuntu maverick
International Ispell (an interactive spelling corrector)
Ispell corrects spelling in plain text, LaTeX, sgml/html/xml, and nroff files.
[x]Emacs and jed have nice interfaces to ispell, and ispell works from many
other tools and from the command line as well.
No ispell dictionaries are included in this package; you must install at least
one of them ("iamerican" is the default dependency for no good reason); install
the "ispell-dictionary" package(s) for the language(s) you and your users will
want to spell-check.
It's a good idea to install "wordlist" package(s) for the same language(s),
because they'll be used by ispell's (L)ookup command.
