Java Wrapper for Hspell

This package contains a Java wrapper for hspell library. Hspell was written by Nadav Har'El and Dan Kenigsberg.

A new dynamic library duplicates the existing static library libhspell.a and adds Java-specific entry points and the HSpellWrapper.jar Java library. The wrapper uses the Java Native Interface (JNI) technology.

Download: hspell1.1-java-20110814.tar.gz

The package mostly duplicates the contents of the official release, with a few additions and modifications. I tried to modify the existing files as little as possible.

Please note that if you want to run autoconf, you will need to install autoconf-archive and libtool and run

aclocal -I /usr/share/autoconf-archive/ -I /usr/share/libtool/
before it.

Unfortunately, I'm not quite good at autotooling, so my additions are rather messy.

Building and installing


tar -zxvf hspellj-1.1.tar.gz
cd hspellj-1.1


./configure --enable-java-wrapper
make java


sudo make install
