I guess you are developing a dictionary and wanted to test the aspell
results alone
Hunspell is the default spellcheck program in fedora. There are two
ways you can test your dictionary using aspell.
1. use aspell command with proper arguments. Read the documentation for details
2. If you can do some python coding : Use enchant. It is a wrapper
over hunspell, aspell and many other spellcheck providers. pyenchant
is a python binding of enchant. You can find it in repo. Use its APIs
to test various features of aspell
