In HP-UX, there is a 'spell' utility and it comes with an American and British dictionary. Howerver, these dictionaries are hashed and are not in the human-readable form. Is it possible to get the unhashed version? Or is there a documentation to the format of the hashed dictionary so that I can make use of it in my own program to judge whether a given word is a vaid english word. I can't use 'spell' directly because the program I am going write is for Ms Windows.
Or alternatively, it will also be helpful if you can tell me where I can find such a word list in plain file format.
