Hspell is a Hebrew SPELLer . It currently provides a mostly spell-like interface (gives the list of wrong words in the input text), but can also suggest corrections (-c). It also provides a true (yet incomplete) morphological analizer (-l), that prints all known meanings of a Hebrew string. On typical documents Hspell recognizes the majority of correct words. However, users must take into account that it still will not recognize *all* the correct words; The dictionary is still not complete, and this situation will continue to improve in the next releases. On the other hand, barring bugs Hspell should not recognize incorrect words - extreme attention has been given to the correctness and consistency of the dictionary.
