A Lua binding to the Hunspell spell checking engine. It is a thin wrapper over
To compile the binding, you need the
libhunspell-dev package (Ubuntu), or compile libhunspell yourself. You can use the included CMake file to automatically find Lua and libhunspell and generate a Unix Makefile (or you can do it manually, it's very simple).
local spell = require 'spell'
spell is a function that opens a dictionary and creates a spelling context.
local sc = spell('/usr/share/hunspell/en_US.aff', '/usr/share/hunspell/en_US.dic')
sc is a hunspell context bound to an affix and dictionary file. It's methods closely follow the methods in include/hunspell/hunspell.cxx:
sc:add_dic(dic_path:string [, key:string])- load extra dictionaries (only dic files)
sc:spell(word:string) -> boolean- returns true, if the word is spelled correctly
sc:suggest(word:string) -> table- returns a table of suggestions for the word (or empty table)
sc:analyze(word:string) -> table- returns a table with morphological analysis of word
sc:stem(word:string) -> table- returns a table of stems of word
sc:generate(word:string, example:string) -> table- generate word(s) by example
sc:generate(word:table, desc:table) -> table- generate word(s) by description (dictionary dependent)
sc:add_word(word:string) -> nothing- adds a word to the main dictionary (in memory)
sc:get_dic_encoding() -> string- returns the current encoding (dictionary dependent)
