For Windows, download this
spell.exe file. Locate your customization
directory. (Running the Alt-x edit-customizations command is one way
to find it.) Create a subdirectory of your customizations directory
spell and put the
there. Then run spell-configure.
For Unix or Mac OS, download this
spell.tgz file. Create a subdirectory
~/.epsilon/spell and and put the
file there. Then run spell-configure.
These files are simply repackaged versions of the SCOWL collection (Spell Checker Oriented Word Lists). You can use other versions of the SCOWL collection with Epsilon's spell-configure command.
Epsilon 13.01 and later can instead use these smaller archives instead
of the above files:
These smaller archives omit all files Epsilon doesn't normally require, such as files to regenerate word lists, and notes on the original word list sources.
You can even substitute a different word list in the espell.lst and espell.srt files, bypassing spell-configure. (The former file is arranged with more common words first. The latter contains the same words but sorted case-sensitively. The word order in epsell.lst only matters when generating suggestions using the internal suggestion mechanism.)
