7.5 Replacement Tables

When phonetic code is not used a replacement table can be used instead. To enable the use of a replacement table add the line repl-table lang, in which case the replacement table is excepted to be in the file ‘lang_repl.dat’. A complete file name can also be specified in place of lang. For compatibility with MySpell the replacement table can also be part of the affix file, in which case ‘repl-table’ will be ‘lang_affix.dat"’.

Replacement table syntax:

 
REP [number_of_replacement_definitions]
REP [what] [replacement]
REP [what] [replacement]

For example a possible English replacement table definition to handle misspelled consonants:

 
REP 8
REP f ph
REP ph f
REP f gh
REP gh f
REP j dg
REP dg j
REP k ch
REP ch k
