Help testing LCB wrapper around Hunspell

Post by trevordevore » Wed Apr 22, 2020 2:30 pm

Hi everyone,

I've been working on wrapping hunspell in LCB and could use help verifying that it works on Windows systems other than my own. So far I've tested using LiveCode 9.6 dp-4 on Windows 10 and Windows 8. The project currently uses version 1.6.2 for Windows. The last version released is 1.7.0 but that didn't have a project I could open in Visual Studio and my attempts to compile a DLL using Cygwin haven't worked thus far.

If you have a few minutes here is what you can do:

1. Visit the Github repo page: https://github.com/trevordevore/lc-hunspell
2. Follow the "Testing" instructions on the page.
3. Report back here your results. I'm interested in what version of Windows you are running and which version of LiveCode you tested with.

Want to add Linux support?

If someone can compile a version of hunspell for Linux then it can be added to the project.

Hi Trevor, thank you for your efforts on this, i can see a lot of use for the extension.

The extension install perfectly with no problems or errors.

Testing went as you described, I have attached an animated screen grab for your reference.

Thanks for testing @AnydP!

Which version of Windows and LC did you test with?
