       codespell - detect spelling mistakes in source code


       codespell [OPTIONS] [file1 file2 ... fileN]


       codespell  is  designed to find and fix common misspellings in text files.  It is designed
       primarily for checking misspelled words in source code, but it  can  be  used  with  other
       files as well.

       usage: codespell [-h] [--version] [-d] [-c] [-w] [-D FILE] [-I FILE]

              [-L  WORDS]  [-r  REGEX] [-s] [-S SKIP] [-x FILE] [-i INTERACTIVE] [-q QUIET_LEVEL]
              [-e] [-f] [-H] [-A LINES] [-B LINES] [-C LINES] [files [files ...]]

   positional arguments:
       files  files or directories to check

   optional arguments:
       -h, --help
              show this help message and exit

              show program's version number and exit

       -d, --disable-colors
              disable colors, even when printing to terminal (always set for Windows)

       -c, --enable-colors
              enable colors, even when not printing to terminal

       -w, --write-changes
              write changes in place if possible

       -D FILE, --dictionary FILE
              Custom dictionary file that contains spelling corrections.  If  this  flag  is  not
              specified  or  equals  "-"  then the default dictionary is used. This option can be
              specified multiple times.

       -I FILE, --ignore-words FILE
              File that contains words which will be ignored by codespell. File  must  contain  1
              word  per  line.  Words  are  case  sensitive  based on how they are written in the
              dictionary file

       -L WORDS, --ignore-words-list WORDS
              Comma separated list of words to be ignored by codespell. Words are case  sensitive
              based on how they are written in the dictionary file

       -r REGEX, --regex REGEX
              Regular  expression  which  is  used  to  find  words.  By default any alphanumeric
              character, the underscore, the hyphen, and the apostrophe is used to  build  words.
              This option cannot be specified together with --writechanges.

       -s, --summary
              print summary of fixes

       -S SKIP, --skip SKIP
              Comma-separated  list of files to skip. It accepts globs as well. E.g.: if you want
              codespell to skip .eps and .txt files, you'd give "*.eps,*.txt" to this option.

       -x FILE, --exclude-file FILE
              FILE with lines that should not be changed

       -i INTERACTIVE, --interactive INTERACTIVE
              Set interactive mode  when  writing  changes.  0:  no  interactivity.  1:  ask  for
              confirmation. 2 ask user to choose one fix when more than one is available. 3: both
              1 and 2

       -q QUIET_LEVEL, --quiet-level QUIET_LEVEL
              Bitmask that allows codespell to run quietly. 0: the default, in which all messages
              are  printed.  1:  disable warnings about wrong encoding. 2: disable warnings about
              binary file. 4: shut down warnings about automatic  fixes  that  were  disabled  in
              dictionary.  8: don't print anything for non-automatic fixes. 16: don't print fixed

       -e, --hard-encoding-detection
              Use chardet to detect the encoding of each file. This can slow down codespell,  but
              is more reliable in detecting encodings other than utf-8, iso8859-1, and ascii.

       -f, --check-filenames
              check file names as well

       -H, --check-hidden
              check hidden files (those starting with ".") as well

       -A LINES, --after-context LINES
              print LINES of trailing context

       -B LINES, --before-context LINES
              print LINES of leading context

       -C LINES, --context LINES
              print LINES of surrounding context
