This is the Git repository for GNU Aspell
The following packages need to be installed to build this package from Git: * perl (I use v5.6.0 but other versions may work) * libtool * gettext * autoconf * automake * makeinfo
Before the build: ``` ./autogen
The `./config-*` will set things up for easier development. If you want to install Aspell to use it rather than develop with it than use the normal `configure`. When `config-*` is used the default things will be installed in `/inst` for easier testing and debugging. You can change that by using the `--prefix` option.
Autogen should be run when ever anything but the source files or Makefile.am files are modified.
Than to build and install:
make make install ```
You will then need to install a dictionary package for the new Aspell. You can find them at http://aspell.net. If Aspell is installed somewhere other than
/usr/localyou will probably need to add
/binto your PATH or make symbolic links to the executable in order for the dictionary to build correctly.
To run the debugger on these programs if there are not installed use
libtool --mode executeFor example to debug aspell with ddd use
libtool --mode execute ddd prog/.libs/aspell
Using libtool is necessary to make sure the shared libraries get loaded right. If you debug them after they are installed this will not be necessary.
