Enchant is a generic spell checking library which uses existing spell checker engines such as ispell, aspell and myspell as its backends. Enchant steps in to provide uniformity and conformity on top of these libraries, and implement certain features that may be lacking in any individual provider library. This package contains standalone runtime binary programs.
