Subject: ispell: new -x problem
X-Mailer: bug 3.1.7
Date: Sun, 14 Feb 1999 14:39:30 -0600
The -x option to ispell which is supposed to make it not write a backup file
now causes it to exit, displaying a usage message.
I first noticed this in mutt, which calls ispell with the -x option. Further
investigation shows this:
$ ispell file.txt
$ ispell -x file.txt
Usage: ispell [-dfile | -pfile | -wchars | -Wn | -t | -n | -x | -b | -S | -B | -C | -P | -m | -Lcontext | -M | -N | -Ttype | -V] file .....
It's possible this was broken when fixing earlier problems with the -x option.
