Branch: pkgsrc-2012Q3, Version: 1.6.0nb5, Package name: enchant-1.6.0nb5, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

The project aims to provide an efficient extensible abstraction
for dealing with different spell checking libraries.

Enchant is meant to provide a generic interface into various existing
spell checking libaries. These include, but are not limited to:
* Aspell/Pspell (intends to replace Ispell)
* Ispell (old as sin, could be interpreted as a defacto standard)
* MySpell/Hunspell (an OOo project, also used by Mozilla)
* Uspell (primarily Yiddish, Hebrew, and Eastern European
languages - hosted in AbiWord's CVS under the module "uspell")
* Hspell (Hebrew)
* Zemberek (Turkish)
* Voikko (Finnish)
* AppleSpell (Mac OSX)

Enchant is also meant to be used in a cross-platform (XP) environment.
Part of this means that Enchant wants to limit its number of external
dependencies to 0, or as close is as humanly possible. Also, any
enchant consumer (i.e. a Word Processor) should not need to know
about what backend providers Enchant knows about. In fact, Enchant
shouldn't even need to know this information itself. To accomplish
this, all of Enchant's providers are DLLs.
