{{{1}}} is a wonderful mode which does wonderful things.



Basic setup

You can use either aspell or hunspell.

Helpful keybindings

[C-x C-c]
Quit Emacs.
[C-x C-s] (or M-x save-buffer)
Save buffer.

Common Customization

Hunspell

You need dictionary files for spell check to work. If you have installed OpenOffice or LibreOffice, then dictionary files are already there.

Windows

Links to precompiled binaries are dead at time of writing.

I got RPMs from openSUSE, but hunspell.exe aborted after not finding a dll file. After that dll was added, another dll was not found. I gave up after several iterations. This was with mingw32-hunspell-1.3.2-1.98.noarch.rpm and later mingw32-hunspell-1.3.2-1.99.noarch.rpm (and associated lang and tools RPMs). Windows users be aware of this.

Emacs-23

Emacs-23 is not as great as Emacs-24. You will have these problems and you can workaround it this way.

Seriously...Why are you even looking at this? You suck. Your Emacs sucks. Your organization sucks.
