We have a small linux cluster (12 machines). Before we populate our database (then create a report from database contents) we would like to spell check a few files. The problem I have is some fields in the text file will contain lists of drugs and other medical terms and other acronyms that the spell checker will automatically think is a spelling error. Eg the line
When I issue the command
aspell --lang en_GB check filename
It doesn't recognise most of these drugs?
Is it possible to create a wordlist (i.e a text file containing a list of accepted drugs and acronyms) that aspell can use so that: (a) it ignores incorrectly spelled drugs (b) If a drug is mis-spelled it suggests the correctly spelled version
