Ispell is the GNU interactive spelling checker.  Ispell will check a text
file for spelling and typographical errors.  When it finds a word that is
not in the dictionary, it will suggest correctly spelled words for the
misspelled word.
Note this package has only the spell checker engine; you also need to
install the dictionary files from the ispell-* package for your language.
