I have made more changes to spelling suggestion part of libvoikko. It is now
possible to actually use different backends for generating spelling
Additionally dependencies between spell checking and spelling suggestions have
been removed. For this to be possible I had to make a small but hopefully
insignificant semantic change to our public API: option
VOIKKO_OPT_IGNORE_NUMBERS is now ignored when generating spelling suggestions.
This change is only significant if an application used this option and tried
to produce suggestions without checking first whether the word passes spell
checking. No application that I know of works this way.
There are also new backends available that may be useful for people who are
developing a specific backend and wish to disable other backends completely
for easier testing:
This morphology backend returns no analysis for any input.
This speller backend returns SPELL_OK for all inputs.
This speller backend returns SPELL_FAILED for all inputs. This
could be used when testing a new suggestion backend.
This suggestion backend returns no suggestions for any input.
