Thumbs up MorphOS: spellchecker.library V1.0

Antoine Dubourg a.k.a. Tcheko released its latest production : spellchecker.library 1.0

This new library offers spellchecking feature based on a dictionary of words. It uses common and efficient spellchecking algorithms : double metaphone and Levenshtein distance (used in major Office package like OpenOffice, AbiWord...). This first release is aimed mainly at developer as no application currently uses spellchecker.library.

Currently, this library offers '(s)low' performances : spellchecking is done with a simple lookup table. Further version will include faster spellchecking with the help of btree.library to the price of 'huge' memory consumption. Tested with a french dictionary of more than 330.000 words, spellchecker.library took more than 80MB of memory excluding its usage on low end hardware like Efika. Some benchmarking were done to evaluate the spellchecking speed : up to 1 000 words per second was achieved on a Mac Mini@1.42 with the btree version of the library.

Still, further version of the library will be designed to handle low memory case to accomodate every kind of hardware. This library also has been wrapped and tested with OWB which offers internal API for spellchecking.

Download : SpellChecker-1.0.lha (14KB)

And to see the library in real world usage:

I really think this should be an integral part MorphOS itself. Having spellchecking in browsers (like Fab showed above in his OWB) is almost a "must have", and imagine having it available system wide, so where ever text is being typed into a MUI text box or whatever application (mail clients, etc), you will have the option of having spellchecking!

Yeah, that would be an excellent attribute to be able to give a text box - SpellCheck_Enabled. I think every OS should have that facility, and a prefs allowing language selection, or disabling should the user wish. Maybe even a blacklist/whitelist for choosing specific applications to allow spell checking or not...

It would be a double-plus OS feature!
