       tmispell.conf - configuration file for tmispell


       This manual page describes the configuration file for tmispell(1).


              The  configuration  file that contains spell-checker entries and

       Syntax of configuration file


              The value string, if enclosed between quotes, may span  multiple
              lines; “#” is a comment character and everything on a line after
              it is ignored.


              ispell The location of the Ispell executable to be called  as  a
                     fall-back. The full path to the Ispell executable must be
                     given. This option is mandatory.

                     A list of TeX commands and their parameter lists  to  use
                     when    filtering    TeX    input.    The    syntax    is
                     "cmdname oOpP, ...", where oOpP is a string of characters
                     denoting  the  type  of  command's parameters.  Uppercase
                     letter means that a parameter  should  be  spell-checked,
                     lowercase  that  it  should not.  O and o denote optional
                     parameters, P and p normal parameters.

                     A list of environments to skip when filtering TeX input.

                     A list of SGML or HTML tag attributes to spell-check.

              The spell-checker module specification consists of seven strings
              on the same line, separated by whitespace(s) (i.e. space or tab)
              and possibly enclosed  in  double  (")  or  single  (')  quotes.
              Backslash  (\)  can  be  used  to escape quote characters inside
              quotes. The meanings of the strings are:

                 1.  The name by which the dictionary is known, similar to the
                     name  of  an  Ispell hash file name without the extension
                     .hash.  This is mandatory.

                 2.  This option is not used in current version of Tmispell.

                 3.  This option is not used in current version of Tmispell.

                 4.  The input encoding this module uses (e.g. UTF-8). This is

                 5.  The  value of the locale variable LC_CTYPE that should be
                     used with this module. This determines the default set of
                     characters  that  are  considered to belong to a word. If
                     empty or not given, the value of a  suitable  environment
                     variable is used.

                 6.  The  set  of  additional word characters not specified by
                     the locale. If not given, no additional  word  characters
                     are assumed.

                 7.  The  set of word boundary characters. They are considered
                     to be a part of a word only when occurring inside one. If
                     not given, no boundary characters are assumed.


       Example configuration file

              suomi "/dev/null" "/dev/null" "UTF-8" "fi_FI.UTF-8" ".-" "':"
              tex-command-filter="begin  po,  end p, usepackage op, newcommand
              tex-environment-filter="equation $ eqnarray displaymath math"

       The first line specifies the location of the fall-back  ispell  program
       to use.

       The  second  line defines spell-checking settings for Finnish language.
       Language is identified by the name “suomi”.  Following two options  are
       not used in the current version of Tmispell.  The input encoding to use
       is UTF-8. Only the letters specified by the locale fi_FI.UTF-8 as  well
       as  period  (.)  and  dash (-) are considered word characters. Boundary
       characters are ASCII apostrophe (') and colon (:).

       Every   time   Tmispell   is   invoked   with   “-d   suomi”   or   “-d
       /usr/lib/ispell/suomi.hash”  as  arguments,  the  Voikko spell-checking
       system is  used  for  spell-checking.  Otherwise  the  real  Ispell  is

       The  third  line  specifies  that  in TeX filter mode the parameters to
       commands begin{}, end{} and usepackage{} should not  be  spell-checked,
       whereas  the  second  optional  and  second  obligatory  parameters  to
       “newcommand” should.

       The fourth line specifies that in TeX filter mode no  math  environment
       should be spell-checked.


       The    original    Tmispell    was   programmed   by   Pauli   Virtanen
       Modifications and integration with Voikko spell-checking system by Har‐
