TYPO (I)                     1/15/73                     TYPO (I)

NAME            typo -- find possible typo's

SYNOPSIS        typo [ - ] file  ...

DESCRIPTION     typo hunts through a document for unusual words,

                typographic errors, and hapax legomena and prints

                them on the standard output.

                All words used in the document are printed out in

                decreasing order of peculiarity along with an in-

                dex of peculiarity.  An index of 10 or more is

                considered peculiar.  Printing of certain very

                common English words is suppressed.

                The statistics for judging words are taken from

                the document itself; with some help from known

                statistics of English.  The "-" option suppresses

                the help from English and should be used if the

                document is written in, for example, Urdu.

                Roff and Nroff control lines are ignored.  Upper

                case is mapped into lower case.  Quote marks,

                vertical bars, hyphens, and ampersands are

                stripped from within words.  Words hyphenated

                across lines are put back together.

BUGS            Because of the mapping into lower case and the

                stripping of special characters, words may be

                hard to locate in the original text.
