Following on from http://forums.mirc.com/ubbthreads.php?ub...rt=2#Post199883

I am currently investigating a way to use the Aspell library with mIRC.

However with my limited knowledge of C++ and creating DLLs, some assistance is needed.

Here's what I'm armed with so far...

A guide to mIRC DLLs -> http://web.archive.org/web/20030214053600/http://necroman.wot.net/dllhelp.htm

Aspell's MS Visual C++ Port -> ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/aspell/aspell-0.60-vc++-20041101.zip

And an installed copy of Microsoft Visual C++ v6.0.

My intention is to use the library with mIRC's $dll, using a combination of on TABCOMP and /editbox.

I do not need assistance with mIRC scripting, what I do need is guidance with is creating a usable and compatible aspell library dll for mIRC.

If you can assist me with this, it'd be appreciated.

It seems there was 4 pages of discussion on this topic as a Feature Suggestions, yet nothing as a Developer request, which is a shame.

I have been looking into this a bit further.

Aspell has been integrated in software such as Pidgin, Digsby, AbiWord, Coccinella, LyX, gedit, Notepad++ and previously Opera.

I am sure many of you will be familiar with Pidgin and Digsby instant messaging software. Digsby seems to use the executable as a daemon which is called when a call to the spell check is made.

I am sure mIRC could do something similar.

You can download and install the windows binary for Aspell here: http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/aspell/w32/Aspell-0-50-3-3-Setup.exe

I'm sure some of you will have fun with this.
