Spelling Command Example

In OMhelp, a word starts either with an upper case letter or a lower case letter that is preceded by a non-letter. The words continues to, but does not include, the next upper case letter or non-letter.

The spell command is used to specify special words that are not spelling errors and are not in the dictionary . It is also used to specify repeated words that should not be flagged as errors. (A repeated word is where the same word occurs twice with just white space between occurrences.)

Execute The Following Steps

Use an editor of your choice to create the file spell_example.omh in the test directory with the following contents:
     	not not
     $section Example Spelling Exceptions$$
     $head Misspelled Words$$
     The word Fft is not in the dictionary.
     $head Repeated Words$$
     The word not is repeated in the sentence
     	$$It is not not true.
Note that you can copy and paste the commands above to your editor window. You may just copy the file with the same name from the getting started directory .
