Description

Ruby FFI bindings for Hunspell.

Examples

Open a dictionary:

require 'ffi/hunspell'
    
FFI::Hunspell.dict do |dict|
  # ...
end

FFI::Hunspell.dict('en_GB') do |dict|
  # ...
end

dict = FFI::Hunspell.dict('en_GB')
# ...
dict.close

Check if a word is valid:

dict.check?('dog')
# => true

dict.check?('d0g')
# => false

Find the stems of a word:

dict.stem('dogs')
# => ["dog"]

Suggest alternate spellings for a word:

dict.suggest('arbitrage')
# => ["arbitrage", "arbitrages", "arbitrager", "arbitraged", "arbitrate"]
