5. Status

5.1 Current

This version of Pspell is still incomplete.

The PspellMutableWordList and STL like helper classes are nonexistent and building of the shared libraries does not work nearly as well as it should.

5.2 Future

Future version of this library will of course be more complete.

Future versions of the interface will provide better support for multi-lingual documents as well as methods for spell checking whole regions of text. Letting the spell checker check whole region of text will allow the spell checker to skip over formating commands, URLs, and the like.

I also plan on coming up with a Pspell utility that will, among other things, function as a drop in replacement for ``ispell -a'' so that Pspell can be used in place of Ispell.
