Re: ispell/aspell on Mac 10.7: "Searching for program: No such file or directory, aspell"

thanks a lot for your help.
I also thought that steps 5) to 7) are not necessary, but without manually
setting up flyspell.el, I obtained:
Starting new Ispell process [default] ...
Enabling Flyspell mode gave an error
Okay, I removed the flyspell folder (containing flyspell.el) and put in the
following in .emacs (as you suggested):
(setq-default ispell-program-name "/usr/local/bin/aspell")
(setq-default ispell-list-command "list")
Without the first command, I get the message "Enabling Flyspell mode gave an
error", so even if aspell belongs to PATH it is not found. Hmm...
I also put in the following in .emacs:
(add-hook 'text-mode-hook 'flyspell-mode); enable flyspell mode for text-mode
(mapcar (lambda (mode-hook) (add-hook mode-hook 'flyspell-prog-mode))
'(c-mode-common-hook R-mode-hook emacs-lisp-mode-hook))
The second/third lines are to use flyspell-prog-mode for .c and .R files (and
emacs-lisp). However, this does not seem to have an impact when I opened a .c
file and put in wrong character sequences in the comments... How does this work?
