Read this blog post: Spell Check Your LaTeX Writings Using GNU Aspell
This tool simplies the usage of GNU aspell (you must have it installed) for spell-checking of LaTeX files.
First, you install it:
$ gem install texsc
Then, you just run it like this for your LaTeX files:
$ texsc article.tex
You may ignore certain tags or environments using
$ texsc --ignore=citet,citep --ignore=newminted article.tex
You can specify the method of ignoring, as aspell suggests (by default it's 'p'):
$ texsc --ignore=newminted:opp article.tex
You may also use your own additional dictionary, via
The file must contain one word per line:
they will be ignored during spell checking. Don't forget that
the first line of the file
personal_ws-1.1 en 1 utf-8
To make configuration easier, you can create
.texsc file next to your
.tex file and place all your command line configuration options over there,
each one on its own line. You can also have a global configuration file
~/.texsc, which will be read first.
