Description Paul Howarth 2010-06-14 14:42:45 UTC
Description of problem:
hunspell in Rawhide treats a dash/hyphen character as a mis-spelled word.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
mock-chroot> cat > fred
This is - a test.  
mock-chroot> cat > jim
This is - a yest.
mock-chroot> hunspell -l fred
mock-chroot> hunspell -l jim

Actual results:
mock-chroot> hunspell -l fred
mock-chroot> hunspell -l jim

Expected results (as per Fedora 13):
mock-chroot> hunspell -l fred
mock-chroot> hunspell -l jim

Additional info:
The presence of the period at the end of "yest" in the Rawhide run suggests that the dash/hyphen may not be the only troublesome character.

specific to the english dictionaries

Comment 2 Caolan McNamara 2010-06-14 15:03:46 UTC
What I wanted to do was to allow "didn't" and other words with a non-typographical ' in them as a single word to be checked by the simple front-end. Looks like I got too loose. Fix up now I hope

Works for me, thanks.
