Re: What is the language "British"?


Yes, the "What is the language "British"?" thread has been a long one,
but I, for one, have thoroughly enjoyed the break and the education.
Just proves most people prefer sharing to ranting.

While we are talking about specialized or personalized spellcheckers,
does any one know where I can get a computer language subsidiary
checker/dictionary.   I want something that will let me write 'ls -a' or
'cd ~/homename/sprdshts/*' or 'googled' or M$-isms in a message without
turning my paragraph red with underlines.
