This paper presents a "user-friendly" spelling checker and corrector written in C, which utilizes a "trie" structure to store its main dictionary of words, thereby eliminating redundancy of letters. The program allows the user to either check the spelling of words or files, or to correct "misspelled" words in files. The program is designed to operate primarily in a minicomputer environment, such as the VAX/VMS environment.
