There's a program that comes with Ubuntu 16.04 LTS by default which is run totally in the terminal and will spell check a text file. But I have trouble remembering what the program is called. What is this program, and how do I run it on
Ubuntu apparently comes with two spell-check programs by default:
$ apropos spell aspell (1) - interactive spell checker aspell-autobuildhash (8) - Autobuilding aspell hash files for some dicts aspell-import (1) - import old personal dictionaries into GNU Aspell enchant (1) - a spellchecker enchant-lsmod (1) - Show information about available spell-checking module...
The program I needed was
aspell. It's very simple to run:
aspell check ~/Documents/file
It will automatically check the file for spelling errors based on the locale set. More information about it can be found in the man pages.
Hope this helps someone!
