To whom it may concern, please forward this request to the main
author(s) of hunspell.
From the changelog of hunspell-1.2.8, it seems that you are the main
developer of hunspell. I am probably going to integrate hunspell support
into LyX (www.lyx.org) as a possible alternative to aspell.
I have successfully ported the MSVC solution to MSVC2008Express (see
attached) but I don't really know how the iconv and intl dependency is
handled in the Windows port. We maintain our own version of these
libraries for Windows and so we will probably do the same for hunspell
(and libmythes which we already use). Also please note that only the dll
compiles and link (I had to add replist to the project file).
I would like to use the C++ interface given by "hunspell.hxx" but it is
not so clean when compared to the C interface given by "hunspell.h".
Would you be open to a patch that put all implementation detail into a
Private class using pimpl idiom? I mean something like this:
/* Hunspell(aff, dic) - constructor of Hunspell class
* input: path of affix file and dictionary file
Hunspell(const char * affpath, const char * dpath, const char * key =
Private * const d;
Then in the cxx file:
char * affixpath;
char * encoding;
struct cs_info * csconv;
Last question but not least:
It seems that there is no mailing list nor svn or cvs repository, is
there? Do you plan to add something like that for collaboration purpose?
Thanks in advance for any information.
On behalf of the LyX developers,
