spell-correct
==================
Ruby code fork from : https://github.com/cloudhead/spell-correct 
[
My implementation of Peter Norvig's python spell-corrector, found here: http://norvig.com/spell-correct.html. 

Focus is on conciseness, not performance.

I provided a .txt file to train it, called holmes.txt; it's all the sherlock holmes books concated together. For better results, download http://norvig.com/big.txt which contains a million words or so..

Note that the training material cannot be a dictionary, as it must help the corrector figure out which words are the most frequently used.
]

==Perl solution==
Read words from a dictionary file named 'dict.txt' and check the iput word list, if miss-spelled words found ,output a suggestion word;
Usage: perl checkSpellAndGiveSuggestions.pl "That is quitee the extravagent armchir"
Output:
Spelling: quitee -> quite
Spelling: extravagent -> extravagant
Spelling: armchir -> armchair

Many improvement needed !
