* escape spaces in paths of ODF files
2014-05-28 Németh László <nemeth at numbertext dot org>:
* add long path/Unicode path support in WIN32 environment:
- hunspell#233 (reported by mahak gark) and LibreOffice fdo#48017
* flat ODF support, eg.:
hunspell doc.fodt
cat doc.fodt | hunspell -l -O
* new options:
- -X (XML) input format
- -O (ODF or flat ODF) input format
- --check-apostrophe: check and force Unicode apostrophe usage
(ASCII or Unicode apostrophe has to be in the
WORDCHARS section of the affix file)
* fix ODF support:
- break 1-line XML of ODT documents at </style:style>, too,
not only at </text:p> (limiting tokenization problems, when
fgets stops within an XML tag)
- show ODF file path on the UI instead of the temporary file
* fix XML support:
- ', ", &, < and > in replacements converted to XML entities
- recognize &apos at tokenization, depending from WORDCHARS
- &apos; in tokens converted to ' before spell checking and
in the output of the pipe interface
* better apostrophe usage:
- WORDCHARS only with one of the Unicode or ASCII apostrophe
results extended word tokenization: both of them will be part of
the words (if they are inside: eg. word's, but not words').
- convert Unicode apostrophes to ASCII ones for 8-bit dictionaries
(eg. English dictionaries), or for UTF-8 dictionaries only
with ASCII apostrophe supports (eg. French dictionaries).

- hunspell.4 renamed to hunspell.5, see
hunspell#241 reported by Cristopher Yeleighton
- updated translations
- note about long/Unicode paths in WIN32 (hunspell.3)

2008-11-01 Németh László <nemeth at OOo>:
* replist.*, hunspell.cxx, affixmgr.cxx: new input and output
conversion support, see ICONV and OCONV keywords in the Hunspell(4)
manual page and the test examples. The input/output conversion
problem of syllabic languages reported by Daniel Yacob and
Shewangizaw Gulilat.
- tests/{iconv,oconv}.*: test examples
* tools/wordforms: word generation script for dictionary developers
(Hunspell version of the unmunch program)
* hunspell/hunspell.cxx: extended BREAK feature: ^ and $ mean in break
patterns the beginning and end of the word.
- tests/BREAK.*: modified examples.
* hunspell/hunspell.cxx: set default break at hyphen characters.
The associated problem reported by S Page in Hunspell Bug 2174061.
See Mozilla Bug ID 355178 and OOo Issue 64400, too.
- tests/breakdefault.*: test data
The following definition is equivalent of the default word break:
* affixmgr.cxx: SIMPLIFIEDTRIPLE is a new affix file keyword to allow
simplified forms of the compound words with triple repeating letters.
It is useful for Swedish and Norwegian languages.
* affixmgr.cxx: extend CHECKCOMPOUNDPATTERN to support
alternations of compound words for example by sandhi
feature of Indian and other languages. The problem reported
by Kiran Chittella associated with Telugu writing system
(see Telugu example in tests/checkcompoundpattern4.test).
The new optional field of CHECKCOMPOUNDPATTERN definition is the
replacement of the compound boundary defined by the previous fields:
means ff|f compound boundary has been replaced by "ff", like in
the (prereform) German Schiffahrt (Schiff+fahrt).
- CHECKCOMPOUNDPATTERN supports also optional flag conditions now:
means that the first word of the compound needs flag "A" and
the second word of the compound needs flag "B" to the operation.
* tools/hunspell.cxx: add empty lines as separators to the output of
the stemming and morphological analysis.
* affixmgr.cxx: fix condition checking algorithm. Bad suggestion
generation reported by Mehmet Akin in Bug 2124186 with help of
Eleonora Goldman.
* affixmgr,cxx: fix COMPOUNDWORDMAX feature. The problem and its
code details reported by Göran Andersson under Bug ID 2138001.
* csutil.cxx: fix bad conditional code for Mozilla compilation.
Patch by Serge Gautherie. The problem reported by Ryan VanderMeulen.
* hunspell/hunspell.cxx: add missing ngram suggestion for HUHINITCAP
(capitalized mixed case) words.
* w_char.hxx: use GCC conditions for GCC related code. Patch by
Ryan VanderMeulen.
* affixmgr.cxx: check morphological description in morphgen()
(fix potential program fault by incomplete morphological
description of affix rules)
* src/win_api: config.h: switch on warning messages on Windows
* tools/affixcompress: extended help for -h (use LC_ALL=C sort
for input word list)
* man/hunspell.4: updated manual:
- new and modified features (SIMPLIFIEDTRIPLE, ICONV, OCONV,
- note about costs of zero affixes, suggested by Olivier Ronez.
* hunspell/hunspell.cxx: remove deprecated word breaking codes.
2008-08-15 Németh László <nemeth at OOo>:
* affentry.cxx: add FULLSTRIP option. With FULLSTRIP, affix rules can
strip full words, not only one less characters. Suggested by
Davide Prina and other developers in OOo Issue 80145.
* tests/fullstrip.*: Test data based on Davide Prina's example.
* tools/unmunch.cxx: modified for FULLSTRIP.
* affixmgr.cxx: COMPOUNDRULE now works with long and numerical flag
types by parenthesized flags. Syntax: (flag)*, (flag)(flag)?(flag)*.
* tests/compoundrule[78].*: tests with parenthesized COMPOUNDRULE
* suggestmgr.cxx: modified badchar*(), forgotchar*() and extrachar*()
1-character distance suggestion algorithms: search a TRY character
in all position instead of all TRY characters in a character position
(it can give more readable suggestion order, also better suggestions
in the first positions, when TRY characters are sorted by frequency.)
For example, suggestions for "moze":
ooze, doze, Roze, maze, more etc. (Hunspell 1.2.6),
maze, more, mote, ooze, mole etc. (Hunspell 1.2.7).
* suggestmgr.cxx: extended compound word checking for better COMPOUNDRULE
related suggestions, for example English ordinal numbers: 121323th ->
121323rd (it needs also a th->rd REP definition).
* phonet.cxx: cast unsigned char parameter of isdigit() and fix
isalpha by myisalpha() (potential problems in Windows environment).
Reported by Thomas Lange in OOo Issue 92736.
* hunspell/csutil.*,hunspell/{affentry,affixmgr,hunspell,suggestmgr}.cxx:
fix potential buffer overloading under morphological analysis by the
new mystrcat() function. Reported by Molnár Andor (dolhpy at true
dot hu) in Bug 2026203.
* affixmgr.cxx: add recursion limit to defcpd(). Fix OOo Issue 76067:
crash-like deceleration by checking hexadecimal numbers with long FFF
sequence (combinatory explosion by the en_US words "f" and "ff").
Missing fix reported by Mathias Bauer.
* affixmgr.cxx: fix the difference in the Unicode and non-Unicode
parts of cpdcase_check(). Bug report by Brett Wilson.
* filemgr.*, affixmgr.cxx, csutil.*, hashmgr.*: warning messages now

-d en_US,en_geo,en_med,de_DE,de_med
en_US and de_DE are base dictionaries, and en_geo, en_med, de_med
are special dictionaries (dictionaries without affix file).
Special dictionaries are optional extension of the base dictionaries.
There is no explicit naming convention for special dictionaries,
only the ".dic" extension: dictionaries without affix file will
be an extension of the preceding base dictionary. First dictionary
in -d parameter must have an affix file (it must be a base

* COPYING: set GPL/LGPL/MPL tri-license for Mozilla integration.
Rationale: Mozilla source code contains an old MySpell version
with GPL/LGPL/MPL tri-license. (MPL license is a copyleft license, similar
to the LGPL, but it acts on file level.)

* src/hunspell/{affixmgr,hashmgr}.*: AF, AM alias definitions in affix file:
compression of flag sets and morphological descriptions (see manual,
and tests/alias* test files).
Rationale: Alias compression is also good for loading time and memory

Note: Curses interactive interface hasn't worked perfectly yet.
* tests/*.tests: remove -1 parameters of Hunspell
* tests/*.{good,wrong}: remove tabulators
* src/hunspell/{hunspell,affixmgr}.cxx: BREAK option: break words at
specified break points and checking word parts separately (see manual).
Note: COMPOUNDRULE is better (or will be better) for handling dashes and
other compound joining characters or character strings. Use BREAK, if you
want check words with dashes or other joining characters and there is no time
or possibility to describe precise compound rules with COMPOUNDRULE.
* tests/break.*: BREAK example.
* src/hunspell/{affixmgr,hunspell}.cxx: add CHECKSHARPS declaration instead
of LANG de_DE definitions to handle German sharp s in both spelling and
* src/hunspell/hunspell.cxx: With CHECKSHARPS, uppercase words are valid
with both lower sharp s (it's is optional for names in German legal texts)
and SS (MÜßIG, MÜSSIG). Missing lower sharp s form reported by Björn Jacke.
* src/hunspell/hunspell.cxx: KEEPCASE flag on a sharp s word has a special
meaning with CHECKSHARPS declaration: KEEPCASE permits capitalisation and SS upper
casing of a sharp s word (Müßig and MÜSSIG), but forbids the upper cased form
with lower sharp s character(s): *MÜßIG.
* tests/germancompounding*: add CHECKSHARPS, remove LANG
* tests/checksharps*: add CHECKSHARPS and KEEPCASE, remove LANG
* src/hunspell/hunspell.cxx: improved suggestions:
- suggestions for pressed Caps Lock problems: macARONI -> macaroni
- suggestions for long shift problems: MAcaroni -> Macaroni, macaroni
- suggestions for KEEPCASE words: KG -> kg
* src/hunspell/csutil.cxx: fix mystrrep() function:
- suggestions for lower sharp s in uppercased words: MÜßIG -> MÜSSIG
* tests/checksharps{,utf}.sug: add tests for mystrrep() fix
* src/hunspell/hashmgr.cxx: Now dictionary words can contain slashes
with the "\/" syntax. Problem reported by Frederik Fouvry.
* src/hunspell/hunspell.cxx: fix bad duplicate filter in suggest().
(Suggesting some capitalised compound words caused program crash
with Hungarian dictionary, OOo Issue 59055).
* src/hunspell/affixmgr.cxx: fix bad defcpd_check() call in compound_check().
(Overlapping new COMPOUNDRULE and old compounding methods caused program
crash at suggestion.)
* src/hunspell/affixmgr.{cxx,hxx}: check affix flag duplication at affix classes.
Suggested by Daniel Naber.
* src/hunspell/affentry.cxx: remove unused variable declarations (OOo i58338).
Compiler warnings reported by András Tímár and Martin Hollmichel.
* src/hunspell/hunspell.cxx: morph(): not analyse bad mixed uppercased forms
(fix Arabic morphological analysis with Buckwalter's Arabic transliteration)
* src/hunspell/affentry.{cxx,hxx}, atypes.hxx: little memory optimization
in affentry:
- using unsigned char fields instead of short (stripl, appndl, numconds)
- rename xpflg field to opts

Header of the dictionary file define approximate dictionary size:
``A dictionary file (*.dic) contains a list of words, one per line.
The first line of the dictionaries (except personal dictionaries)
contains the _approximate_ word count (for optimal hash memory size).''
Asked by Frederik Foudry.
One-character replacements in REP definitions: ``It's very useful to
define replacements for the most typical one-character mistakes, too:
with REP you can add higher priority to a subset of the TRY suggestions
(suggestion list begins with the REP suggestions).''

* src/hunspell/affixmgr.*: new and improved affix file parameters:
- COMPOUND definitions: compound patterns with regexp-like matching.
See manual and test files: tests/compound*.*
Suggested by Bram Moolenaar.
Also useful for simple word-level lexical scanning, for example
analysing numbers or words with numbers (OOo Issue #53643):
Examples: tests/compound{4,5}.*.
- NOSUGGEST flag: words signed with NOSUGGEST flag are not suggested.
Proposed flag for vulgar and obscene words (OOo Issue #55498).
Example: tests/nosuggest.*.
Problem reported by bobharvey at OOo:
- KEEPCASE flag: Forbid capitalized and uppercased forms of words
signed with KEEPCASE flags. Useful for special ortographies
(measurements and currency often keep their case in uppercased
texts) and other writing systems (eg. keeping lower case of IPA
- CHECKCOMPOUNDCASE: Forbid upper case characters at word bound in compounds.
Examples: tests/checkcompoundcase* and tests/germancompounding.*
- FLAG UTF-8: New flag type: Unicode character encoded with UTF-8.
Example: tests/flagutf8.*.
Rationale: Unicode character type can be more readable
(in a Unicode text editor) than `long' or `num' flag type.
bug fixes:
* src/hunspell/hunspell.cxx: accept numbers and numbers with separators (i53643)
Bug reported by skelet at OOo:

2005-09-19 Németh László <>:
* src/hunspell/suggestmgr.cxx: improved ngram suggestion:
- detect not neighboring swap characters (pernament -> permanent)
Rationale: ngram method has a significant error with not neighboring
swap characters, especially when swap is in the middle of the word.
- suggest uppercase forms (unesco -> UNESCO, siggraph's -> SIGGRAPH's)
- suggest only ngram swap character and uppercase form, if they exist.
Rationale: swap character and casing equivalence give mutch better
suggestions as any other (weighted) ngram suggestions.
- add uppercase suggestion (PERMENANT -> PERMANENT)
* src/hunspell/*: complete comparison with MySpell 3.2 (in OOo beta 2):
- affixmgr.cxx: add missing numrep initialization
- hashmgr.cxx: add_word(): don't allocate temporary records

- check capitalized words first (better sug. order for proper names),
- check pSMgr->suggest() return value
- set pSMgr->suggest() call to not optional in HUHCAP
- csutil.cxx: fix bad KOI8-U -> koi8r_tbl reference in enc_entry encds

* src/hunspell/affixmgr.*: improved compound word and other features
- generalize hu_HU specific compound word features with new affix file
parameters, suggested by Bram Moolenaar:
- CHECKCOMPOUNDDUP: forbid word duplication in compounds (eg. foo|foo)
- CHECKCOMPOUNDTRIPLE: forbid triple letters in compounds (eg. foo|obar)
- CHECKCOMPOUNDPATTERN: forbid patterns at word bounds in compounds
- CHECKCOMPOUNDREP: using REP replacement table, forbid presumably bad
compounds (useful for languages with unlimited number of compounds)
- ONLYINCOMPOUND flag works also with words (see tests/onlyincompound.*)
Suggested by Daniel Naber, Björn Jacke, Trón Viktor & Bram Moolenaar.
- PSEUDOROOT works also with prefixes and prefix + suffix combinations
(see tests/pseudoroot5.*). Suggested by Trón Viktor.
- man/hunspell.4: updated man page

suffixes (delete unnecessary contclasses[] conditions in
prefix_check_twosfx() and prefix_check_twosfx_morph()).
Bug reported by Trón Viktor.
* src/hunspell/affixmgr.*: complete also *_morph() functions with
conditions of new Hunspell features (circumfix, pseudoroot etc.).

- i35725.*: improved ngram suggestion test for Issue 35725
2005-08-26 Németh László <>:
* src/hunspell/suggestmgr.cxx:
Unicode support in related character map suggestion
* src/hunspell/suggestmgr.cxx: Unicode support in ngram suggestion
* src/hunspell/{suggestmgr,affixmgr,hunspell}.cxx: improve ngram suggestion.
Fix See release
notes for examples. This problem reported by beccablain at OOo.
- ngram suggestions now are case insensitive (see `Permenant' bug in Issuezilla)
- weight ngram suggestions (with the longest common subsequent algorithm,
also considering lengths of bad word and suggestion, identical first
letters and almost completely identical character positions)
- set strict affix congruency in expand_rootword(). Now ngram suggestions
are good for languages with rich morphology and also better for English.
Rationale: affixed forms of the first ngram suggestion
very often suppress the second and subsequent root word suggestions. But
faults in affixes are more uncommon, and can be fix without suggestions.
We must prefer the more informative second and subsequent root word
suggestions instead of the suggestions for bad affixes.
- a better suggestion may not be substring of a less good suggestion
Rationale: Suggesting affixed forms of a root word is
unnecessary, when root word has got better weighted ngram value.
(Checking substrings is a good approximation for this refinement.)
- lesser ngram suggestions (default 3 maximum instead of 10)
Rationale: For users need a big extra effort to check a lot of bad ngram
suggestions, nine times out of ten unnecessarily. It is very
distracting, because ngram suggestions could be very different.
Usually Myspell and Hunspell suggest one or two suggestions with
the old suggestion algorithms (maximum is 15), with ngram algorithm
often gives maximum number suggestions. With strict affix congruency
and other refinements, the good suggestion there is usually among the
first three elements.
- new affix parameter: MAXNGRAMSUG
* src/hunspell/*: support agglutinative languages with rich prefix
morphology or with right-to-left writing system (for example, Turkic
and Austronesian languages with (modified) Arabic scripts).
- new affix parameter: COMPLEXPREFIXES
Set twofold prefix stripping (but single suffix stripping)
* src/hunspell/affixmgr.cxx:
- speed up prefix loading with tree sorting algorithm.
* tests/complexprefixes.*, tests/complexprefixesutf.*:
Coptic example posted by Moheb Mekhaiel
* src/hunspell/hashmgr.cxx: check size attribute in dic file
suggested by Daniel Naber
Rationale: With missing size attribute Hunspell allocates too small and
more slower hash memory, and Hunspell can lose first dictionary word.
* src/hunspell/affixmgr.cxx: check stripping characters and condition
compatibility in affix rules (bugs detected in cs_CZ, es_ES, es_NEW,
es_MX, lt_LT, nn_NO, pt_PT, ro_RO and sk_SK dictionaries). See release
notes of Hunspell 1.0.9 in NEWS.
* src/hunspell/affixmgr.cxx: check unnecessary fields in affix rules
(bugs detected in ro_RO and sv_SE dictionaries). See release notes.
* src/hunspell/affixmgr.cxx: remove redundant condition checking
in affix rules with stripping characters (redundancy in
dictionaries reported by Eleonóra Goldman)
Rationale: this is a little optimization, but it was excellent for
detect the bad ngram affixation with bad or weak affix conditions.
* tests/germancompounding.aff: improve compound definition
- use dash prefix instead of language specific tokenizer
Rationale: Using uniform approach is the right way to check and analyze
compound words. Language specific word breaking is deprecated, need
a sophisticated grammar checking for word-like word pairs
(for example in Hungarian there is a substandard, but accepted
syntax with dash for word pairs: cats, dogs -> kutyák-macskák (like
cats/dogs in English).
* test Hunspell with 54 dictionaries: see release notes
bug fixes:
* src/hunspell/suggestmgr.*: add time limit to exponential
algorithm of the related character map suggestion
Rationale: a long word in agglutinative languages or a special pattern
(for example a horizontal rule) made of map characters can `crash' the
spell checker.
* src/hunspell/affentry.cxx: add() functions: fix bad word generation
checking stripping characters (see similar bug in unmunch)
* src/hunspell/affixmgr.cxx: parse_file(): fix unconditional getNext()
call for ~AffixMgr() when affix file is corrupt.
* src/hunspell/affixmgr.*: AffixMgr(), parse_cpdsyllable(): fix missing
string duplications for ~AffixMgr() when affix file is corrupt.
* src/hunspell/affixmgr.*: parse_affix(): fix fprintf() call when affix
file is corrupt. Bug reported by Daniel Naber.
* suggestmgr.cxx: replace single usage of 'strdup' with 'mystrdup'
patch by Chris Halls (
* src/hunspell/ add for compiling in
See README in Hunspell UNO modul.
Problems with separated compiling reported by Rene Engelhard
* src/hunspell/hunspell.cxx: fix pseudoroot support
- search a not pseudoroot homonym in check()
* tests/pseudoroot4.*: test this fix
* src/tools/unmunch.c: fix bad word generation when conditions
are shorter or incompatible with stripping characters in affix rules
* src/tools/unmunch.c: fix mychomp() for de_AT.dic and other dic files
without last new line character.
other changes:
* src/hunspell/suggestmgr.*: erase ACCENT suggestion
Rationale: ACCENT suggestion was the same as Kevin Hendrick's map
suggestion algorithm, but with a less good interface in affix file.
* src/hunspell/suggestmgr.*: combine cycle number limit
in badchar(), and forgotchar() with a time limit.
* src/hunspell/affixmgr.*: remove NOMAPSUGS affix parameter
* src/hunspell/{suggestmgr,hunspell}.*: strip periods from
suggestions (restore MySpell's original behaviour)
Rationale: has an automatic period handling mechanism
and suggestions look better without periods.
- new affix file parameter: SUGSWITHDOTS
Add period(s) to suggestions, if input word terminates in period(s).
(No need for dictionaries.)
* tests/germancompounding.aff: improve bad german affix in affix example
(computeren->computern). Suggested by Daniel Naber.
