critical impact:

spell, spellin, spellout - option differences (CrUn268)

CMD Impacts

Problem description

Some spell command options exist on Tru64 UNIX but not on HP-UX.

The following spell command options are not available on HP-UX:

  • -d hash_list - Specifies hash_list as the alternate spelling list.

  • -h history_list - Specifies history_list as the alternate history list that is used to accumulate all output.

  • -s hash_stop - Specifies hash_stop as the alternate stop list that is used to filter out misspellings.

The spellin command creates a spelling list for use by the spell command. The argument for the spellin command can be a list or a file number. This command combines the words from the standard input and the preexisting list file and places a new list on the standard output. The spellin command functionality is not available on HP-UX.

The spellout command is not supported on HP-UX. The spellout command looks up each word from the standard input and prints on the standard output those that are missing from the hashed list file.
