Spell check Memo documents quickly
I use a spell checking program which is the best I have ever seen for the Palmtop! GDSPELL Ver.3.0b is a fast, easy spell checker. It includes a fast dictionary for the quick lookup of about 20,000 common words, and an auxiliary dictionary of another 85,000 less common words. GDSPELL allows you to build your own auxiliary (AUXI) dictionary of words you commonly use.

I use GDSPELL together with MF.EXE. MF.EXE is a small utility that loads the last file you edited in Memo. I put GDSPELL in a directory I set up as A:\GDSPELL, then made a batch file (MEMOCHK.BAT) that I can run from an icon in Application Manager. The batch file opens the last document I had open in Memo, and spell checks it. The batch file contains the following line:
A:\GDSPELL\MF SPELL \M
I added MEMOCHK.BAT to my Application Manager as follows:
Comments: (I entered an upside down question mark here by pressing (FN) (?))
Icon: (I added an Icon.)
After I have typed and saved a Memo document, I start the spell checker from the Application Manager. GDSPELL checks my documents with a speed which I have never seen before on a Palmtop spell checker.
