Spelling

My tool that builds dictionaries (well, word lists) is complete with almost 135,000 words… I'm using the iSpell American dictionary as a base for now, but the way that it's set up it'll be very easy to implement other language support. I've also pasted in all the bodmod words from the glossary.

Version one of the spell checker is just going to be a spell checker, and then shortly after I'll implement a “sounds like” recommendation system which hopefully will be quite functional. If it's not obvious, I'm not just plugging in someone else's spellcheck library — I'm actually writing this damn thing from scratch.

Anyway, here's the output of the build process, now I'm off to start testing lookups:

  C:\bme2\engine\iam\spell>buildc  .................................  Wrote 83,942 roots, plus 53,807 new words.  ...........................(134,842)  Sorted word table, removed 2,907 doubles.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
