Aspell is an Open Source spell checker designed to eventually replace Ispell. Its main feature is that it does a much better job of coming up with possible suggestions than Ispell does. In fact recent tests shows that it even does better than Microsoft Word 97's spell checker in some cases. In addition it has both compile time and run time support for other non English languages. Aspell also doubles as a powerful C++ library with C and Perl interfaces in the works.
