Description Perfect Gentleman 2020-10-20 03:42:20 UTC
Enchant is capable of having multiple backends loaded at once. Currently, Enchant has 6 backends:
 - Hunspell (used by many other programs, including Firefox and Thunderbird)
 - Nuspell (newest spell checker to be used by many other programs, including Firefox and Thunderbird)
 - GNU Aspell (old Ispell replacement)
 - Hspell (Hebrew)
 - Voikko (Finnish)
 - Zemberek (Turkish)
AppleSpell (macOS)

Reproducible: Always

Patch for nuspell support in enchant-2.2.15

I've been using enchant-2.2.8 for quite a while with nuspell support patched in, and I haven't noticed any issues. Here's the rather trivial patch I'm using updated to 2.2.15, which also seems to work just fine.
