Can you explain what this is about?
I have a new set of interfaces based on David Einsteins work that will enable external spell checkers to work within Mozilla. The default spell checker will still be our SC for Netscape. But David said he would port his MySpell over to work with Mozilla so then Mozilla will have a spell checker.
oh so what did you need on that.
Created attachment 106523 [details] [diff] [review] New SpellCheck Interfaces These are the new interfaces for enabling Mozilla to work with external spellcheckers
Created attachment 106525 [details] [diff] [review] patch (interfaces and new glue code) Here are the interfaces with what I hope is the correct MPL and the new glue code for mozilla.
*** Bug 58615 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Is this relevant to bug 86886?
Greg, what this means is that someone can now provide and impl of the apple spellcheck to these new interfaces.
Thanks, rods. Sounds like this should be All/All.
Comment on attachment 106525 [details] [diff] [review] patch (interfaces and new glue code) The interfaces are fine, I am obsoleting this because I have made some significant changes to some of the glue code and I don't want this patch to be reviewed. Plus, I think I will be moving this to the "extensions" directory.
Created attachment 110000 [details] [diff] [review] patch This patch contains only the changes for splitting the glue code apart and being able to spellcheck an arbitrary selection
+#ifdef XP_MAC +#define IS_NBSP_CHAR(c) (((unsigned char)0xca)==(c)) +#else +#define IS_NBSP_CHAR(c) (((unsigned char)0xa0)==(c)) +#endif That might need to be #if defined(XP_MAC) || defined(XP_MACOSX)
Created attachment 110025 [details] [diff] [review] patch for config files These files will put the mozilla/extensions/spellcheck into the build
Rod, what is the status on this bug? Can we start porting mozdev's spell checker to the new glue code?
Any chance of this going in during the 1.4 cycle?
Has the now Mozilla roadmap any influence on this bug? Will Minotaur/Thunderbird/Moz1.5 ship with a spellchecker? AFAIK additions/plugins should be easier to handle with the new approach. Will the spellchecker remain a mozdev addon, or will it once be part of the distribution?
Now that mozdev spellchecker is in the tree, is this bug still relevant?
I'm pretty sure this is no longer valid.
