xml_spellcheck — spellcheck XML files


xml_spellcheck [options] <files>


xml_spellcheck lets you spell check the content of an XML file. It extracts the text (the content of elements and optionally of attributes), call a spell checker on it and then recreates the XML document.


Note that all options can be abbreviated to the first letter

--conf <configuration_file>
Gets the options from a configuration file. NOT IMPLEMENTED YET.
--spellchecker <spellchecker>
The command to use for spell checking, including any option

By default "aspell -c" is used
--backup-extension <extension>
By default the original file is saved with a ".bak" extension. This option changes the extension
Spell check attribute content. By default attribute values are NOT spell checked. NOT YET IMPLEMENTED
--exclude_elements <list_of_excluded_elements>
A list of elements that should not be spell checked
--include_elements <list_of_included_elements>
A list of elements that should be spell checked (by default all elements are spell checked).

"--exclude_elements" and "--include_elements" are mutually exclusive
