The recommended way to use Aspell as a replacement for Ispell is to change the Ispell command from within the program being used. If that is not possible, the run-with-aspell script may be used instead.



is the name of the program with any optional arguments.

The old method of mapping ispell to Aspell is discouraged because it can create compatibility problems with programs that actually require ispell such as ispell’s own scripts.
