ENCHANT(1) Enchant Mini Help File ENCHANT(1)

Enchant - a spellchecker

enchant [ -a] [-l] [-L] [-v]
 

Enchant is an ispell-compatible spellchecker.

-a
List alternatives.
-l
List only the misspellings.
-L
Include the line number in the output.
-v
Prints the program's version.

Enchant has a global and a per-user ordering file named enchant.ordering. It lets the user specify which spelling backend to use for individual languages in the case when you care which backend gets used. The global file is located in $(datadir)/enchant and the per-user file is located in ~/.enchant. The per-user file takes precedence, if found.
The ordering file takes the form language_tag:<comma-separated list of spelling backends>. I am currently aware of the following backends: aspell, myspell, ispell, uspell, hspell, voikko, and zemberek. '*' is used to mean "use this ordering for all languages, unless instructed otherwise." For example:
*:aspell,myspell,ispell
 
en:aspell,myspell,ispell
 
en_UK:myspell,aspell,ispell
 
fr:myspell,ispell:aspell

Unless configured otherwise, Enchant's Myspell, Ispell, and Uspell backends will look for dictionaries in directories specific to Enchant, and will not use your system-wide installed dictionaries. This is for pragmatic reasons since many distributions install these dictionaries into different locations.
Like the enchant.ordering file described above, Enchant looks in the global directory for these dictionaries and a per-user directory. The per-user directory takes precedence if it is found. Enchant looks for Myspell dictionaries in $(datadir)/enchant/myspell and ~/.enchant/myspell. Enchant looks for Ispell dictionaries in $(datadir)/enchant/ispell and ~/.enchant/ispell. Enchant looks for Uspell dictionaries in $(datadir)/enchant/uspell and ~/.enchant/uspell.
Packagers and users may wish to make symbolic links to the system-wide dictionary directories. Or, preferably, use the --with-myspell-dir, --with-ispell-dir, and --with-uspell-dir 'configure' arguments.
