When I installed my FreeBSD 2.1.0 from CD, I also installed the
dictionary files. Now they are in /usr/share/dict. However, I
cannot understand how I can make use of them. I just cannot
find a command to run to check spelling of a text.

I know about the ispell utility from the ports collection, but
it seems to be using its own dictionary files.

And another question. Do you know if there are German and
Russian spell checkers for FreeBSD somewhere?

Thank you very much for your help.
