Description msterret 1999-11-16 02:48:35 EST
Using the (L)ookup function of ispell with a wildcard, for example
bl*, should return a list of words in the dictionary beginning with bl.

Instead, the user is returned to the ispell menu.  This works correctly in
RedHat 5.2.

Comment 1 msterret 1999-11-19 01:40:59 EST
The problem is caused by ispell looking for grep in /usr/bin instead of /bin.
I sent a message to redhat-devel-list@redhat.com with a patch that fixes it.
Comment 2 Michael K. Johnson 1999-11-19 17:09:59 EST
Will be fixed in ispell-3.1.20-23 and later.

Thanks, msterret!
