Description rwilson 1999-12-10 17:30:32 UTC
The script 'spell' which is included in both RH 6.0 and RH 5.0 only
   works if the file is fed in to the stdin.  The following does a much
   better job of emulating Unix spell:


# ispell -l mimicks the standard unix spell program, roughly.

cat $*| ispell -l | sort -u
