./configure && make
configure options type ‘./configure
--help’. You can control what C++ compiler is used by setting the
CXX before running configure and you can
control what flags are passed to the C++ compile via the environment
CXXFLAGS. Static libraries are disabled by default
since static libraries will not work right due to the mixing of C and
C++. When a C program links with the static libraries in Aspell it is
likely to crash because Aspell’s C++ objects are not getting
initialized correctly. However, if for some reason you want them, you
can enable them via --enable-static.
Aspell should then compile without any additional user intervention. If you run into problems please first check the sections below as that might solve your problem.
To install the program simply type
After Aspell is installed at least one dictionary needs to be
installed. You can find them at http://aspell.net/. The
aspell program must be in your path in order for the
dictionaries to install correctly.
If you do not have Ispell or the traditional Unix
installed on your system then you should also copy the compatibility
spell located in the scripts/
directory into your binary directory which is usually
/usr/local/bin so that programs that expect the
spell command will work correctly.
