Thank you for your contribution to this discussion.
It would be nice indeed if there were a text speller
which could be used instead of ispell. However,
fist of all nano should have a screen where you
can tell nano which program to use to carry out
the text spelling, whether ispell or some other
program. Second, it appears to me that if another
spell checker is used instead of ispell, than it must
support the same command line interface in order
to be compatible with nano.

As a curiosity, assuming the name "ispell" is
included into nano and the fork() system call
is used to launch it, where does nano look
for ispell in terms of the absolute path to
the spell checker?

Also, as an aside, does anyone know whether
the nano screen interface for window is also
compiled with GNU ncurses just like the
Linux counterpart?
