       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 options.

       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 mandatory.

                 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 poOP"
              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 started.

       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-
