TYPO(I)                      5/15/74                      TYPO(I)


     typo - find possible typos


     typo [ -1 ] [ -n ] file ...


     Typo hunts through a document for unusual words, typographic

     errors,  and  hapax legomena and prints them on the standard


     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 -n option suppresses the help from English and should be

     used if the document is written in, for example, Urdu.

     The -1 option causes the final output to appear in a  single

     column  instead  of  three  columns.   The normal header and

     pagination is also suppressed.

     Roff (I) and nroff (I) control  lines  are  ignored.   Upper

     case is mapped into lower case.  Quote marks, vertical bars,

     hyphens, and  ampersands  within  words  are  equivalent  to

     spaces.    Words   hyphenated  across  lines  are  put  back







     Because of the mapping into lower case and the stripping  of

     special  characters,  words  may  be  hard  to locate in the

     original text.

     The  escape  sequences  of  troff  (I)  are  not   correctly
