What is PhpDig?
PhpDig is a PHP MySQL based
Web Spider & Search Engine.



pspell_suggest — Suggests alternate spelling(s) for a misspelled word.


array pspell_suggest(dictid, word);
int dictid: Dictionary link ID
string word: Word upon which to base suggestions


Array of suggested spellings; FALSE if an error occurs


This function accepts a (presumably misspelled) word and returns a list of suggested correct spellings. The list is taken from the default list in the dictionary being used, any additional replacement pairs provided via pspell_store_replacement() , and any personal replacement wordlists contained in personal wordlists if such are being used.


Example 1117. Command-line script for checking and suggesting on a single word

#!/usr/local/bin/php -q

if ($argc != 2) {
    die("Usage: " . basename($argv[0]) . " <word>\n");

if (!$dictid = pspell_new('en')) {
    die("Error: Could not load dictionary.\n");

$word = $argv[1];
if (!pspell_check($dictid, $word)) {
    $suggestions = pspell_suggest($dictid, $word);
    echo "Incorrect; try one of the following:\n";
    foreach ($suggestions as $suggestion) {
        echo "$suggestion\n";
} else {
    echo "$word is correct.\n";
