Hello Folks,

Apologies if this has been discussed already, but I couldn't find anything in 
the archives.

I am using the version of Aspell distributed with SuSE 9.2. The version is 
indicated as:

International Ispell Version 3.1.20 (but really Aspell 0.50.5)

I have also written a small front-end for Aspell in tcl/tk, called Extspell. 
This is very primitive (reflecting the leve of my scripting skills) and is 
something of a stop-gap measure until spelling checking is integrated into 
OmegaT (I won't bore you here with the details - more on request).

Extspell is available at:

Now, according to the Aspell screen help, the command


produces a list of misspelled words from standard input. This is, however, not 
correct. On my version, -l works, -lilst does not. Conversely, another 
Extspell user who is using Aspell 0.60.0 reports that -list works, but -l 
does not (being the short form for --lang).

This leaves me with a problem: handling both variants in Extspell. Can anyone 
confirm what versions of Aspell use what variants?
