I think the error message has to refer to the ispell dictionary type by its assigned name, otherwise you'll just create even more confusion. (In other words, I read the message as talking about PG's ispell dictionary code, not about somebody else's ispell man file.) The right place to explain that ispell accepts hunspell-formatted files, or to link to specifications of what that means, is in the documentation. Section 12.6.5 already says that, but maybe it could be expanded/rewritten a little. regards, tom lane -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
