I've no spelling knowledge, so the list of spellcorrections must be made
by someone else. But i can volunteer the perl-snippet to correct the
files. :-)

See attachment.

The programm uses this file-format:

As there are many ways to false-write a word i think this is the best(tm)
solution to get readable file.

I've only done a "quick-debug", so there might still be errors in the
program. (Including spelling-bugs ;-) )

- snip -
Usage: <options>, where valid options are
--help # this message :-)
--file <file> # File(s) to be checked
--dir <dir> # Directory(s) to be checked (recursive!)
--spell-file # File with the correction-list
--debug # Debugging-Messages
- snip -

Real Programmers consider "what you see is what you get" to be just as
bad a concept in Text Editors as it is in women. No, the Real Programmer
wants a "you asked for it, you got it" text editor -- complicated,
cryptic, powerful, unforgiving, dangerous.
