In Linux you can just do:
cat a_text_file.txt | aspell -a > reported_errors_file.txt

reported_errors_file.txt will contain a line for each error with the
location in a_text_file.txt (line and column), plus suggestions. For
instance of such a line for the misspelled word "berlin":

& berlin 19 2: Berlin, beeline, Berlins, Berliner, Bellina, Bellini,
belling, Oberlin, Merlin, Berni, blini, Bering, Berlin's, Bern, baling,
byline, Belia, Berle, belie
