Overview

mwic is a spell-checker that groups possible misspellings and shows them in their contexts. This is useful for checking technical documents, which often contain words that are not included in standard dictionaries.

Example

Prerequisites

The following software is needed to run mwic:

  • Python ≥ 3.3;
  • PyEnchant, Python bindings for the Enchant spellchecking system;
  • regex, alternative regular expression module for Python.

Additionally, the following software is needed to rebuild the manual page from source:

For pip users:

python3 -m pip install pyenchant regex
python3 -m pip install docutils

For Debian users:

apt-get install python3-enchant python3-regex
apt-get install python3-docutils
