-- Spelling checker
-- This package provides a utility routine for checking for bad spellings
package GNAT.Spelling_Checker is
pragma Pure (Spelling_Checker);
function Is_Bad_Spelling_Of
(Found : String;
Expect : String)
return Boolean;
-- Determines if the string Found is a plausible misspelling of the
-- string Expect. Returns True for an exact match or a probably
-- misspelling, False if no near match is detected. This routine
-- is case sensitive, so the caller should fold both strings to
-- get a case insensitive match.
-- Note: the spec of this routine is deliberately rather vague. This
-- routine is the one used by GNAT itself to detect misspelled keywords
-- and identifiers, and is heuristically adjusted to be appropriate to
-- this usage. It will work well in any similar case of named entities
-- with relatively short mnemonic names.
