rdoc-spellcheck checks your documentation for spelling errors. File, class, and method names are automatically excluded from the results and you can add your own words to the default word list.
Checks documentation for pages, classes, modules, methods, constants, etc.
Prints a report showing each misspelled word and correction suggestions
rdoc-spellcheck depends on aspell for which development has ceased despite messages to the contrary. I've submitted two pull requests to the hunspell-ffi gem that should allow it to become a usable replacement for the raspell gem. (The currently released hunspell-ffi does not appear to support private or session dictionaries.)
For some projects it seems there are too many false positives for names and programming words. I've reduced this somewhat by automatically including many programming words in the session dictionary. One solution involves switching to hunspell which appears to have better-maintained word dictionaries. The other involves exploring an upper threshold for the edit distance between a given word and its suggestion.
$ rdoc -f spellcheck lib *.rdoc
libaspell – See github.com/evan/raspell/blob/master/README.rdoc for installation instructions for aspell
sudo gem install rdoc-spellcheck
After checking out the source, run:
$ rake newb
This task will install any missing dependencies, run the tests/specs, and generate the RDoc.
