int pspell_new(string $language[, string $spelling, string $jargon, string $encoding, int $mode = 0])
pspell_new() opens up a new dictionary and returns the dictionary link identifier for use in other pspell functions.
For more information and examples, check out inline manual pspell website:» http://aspell.net/.
Returns the dictionary link identifier on success or
FALSE on failure.
- string $language: The language parameter is the language code which consists of the two letter ISO 639 language code and an optional two letter ISO 3166 country code after a dash or underscore.
- string $spelling: The spelling parameter is the requested spelling for languages with more than one spelling such as English. Known values are 'american', 'british', and 'canadian'.
- string $jargon: The jargon parameter contains extra information to distinguish two different words lists that have the same language and spelling parameters.
- string $encoding: The encoding parameter is the encoding that words are expected to be in. Valid values are 'utf-8', 'iso8859-*', 'koi8-r', 'viscii', 'cp1252', 'machine unsigned 16', 'machine unsigned 32'. This parameter is largely untested, so be careful when using.
- int $mode [ = 0]: The mode parameter is the mode in which spellchecker will work. There are several modes available:
PSPELL_FAST- Fast mode (least number of suggestions)
PSPELL_NORMAL- Normal mode (more suggestions)
PSPELL_BAD_SPELLERS- Slow mode (a lot of suggestions)
PSPELL_RUN_TOGETHER- Consider run-together words as legal compounds. That is, "thecat" will be a legal compound, although there should be a space between the two words. Changing this setting only affects the results returned by pspell_check(); pspell_suggest() will still return suggestions. Mode is a bitmask constructed from different constants listed above. However,
PSPELL_BAD_SPELLERSare mutually exclusive, so you should select only one of them.
