    Ispell, a spell-checker for Leafpad

    .
    I'm looking for a spell-checker for Leafpad or an equivalent choice in
    another small text editor that has a built-in spell-checker.

    I found this interesting adaptation of Ispell, which is in Synaptic but
    not installed by default. One of the forum entries, by BruceB, gives a
    small adapting bash script to tie Ispell and Leafpad together.

    I'm interested to hear any comments on this or other approaches.

    Here's an upgrade of BruceB's idea, using aspell and .bashrc

    Add this to .bashrc:

    lpad() { # uses leafpad to edit $1; on closing leafpad, aspell checks spelling; on closing aspell, leafpad shows corrected copy.
    leafpad $1; aspell -c $1; leafpad $1 &
    }

    I had seen that link to the Puppy Linux forum from a Google search. It is not achieving much of anything useful.

    I also remember your suggestion to integrate HunSpell with Leafpad but that did not happen.

    Gedit in Knoppix v7.6, when properly fixed by the Knoppix team and/or by the authors of gedit, will do the job.
