ISPELL(8)                   System Manager's Manual                  ISPELL(8)



NAME
       update-ispell-dictionary  -  Bash script to select a new ispell default
       dictionary.

SYNOPSIS
       update-ispell-dictionary

DESCRIPTION
       If you have more than one Debian ispell dictionary  package  installed,
       you  should  use  update-ispell-dictionary  to  select the default one.
       This script is also run for you any  time  you  install  a  new  Debian
       ispell dictionary package.

       This  script makes extensive use of 'update-alternatives' from the dpkg
       suite of programs.  Priority information for each of  the  alternatives
       is  stored,  read  and acted upon by 'update-alternatives'.  IMPORTANT:
       All ispell dictionary packages should install themselves with  priority
       10.   This  script will then assign priority 999 to the chosen default,
       and re-run update-alternatives.
