TYPO(I) 1/15/73 TYPO(I) NAME typo - find possible typos SYNOPSIS typo [ - ] file ... 1 DESCRIPTION Typo hunts through a document for unusual words, typographic errors, and hapax legomena and prints them on the standard output. The words used in the document are printed out in decreasing order of peculiarity along with an index 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. FILES /tmp/ttmp??, /usr/lib/salt, /usr/lib/w2006 BUGS Because of the mapping into lower case and the stripping of special characters, words may be hard to locate in the original text. The expanded escape sequences of troff are not correctly recognized.
