Now that we've got past the "read the email" barrier, we face the 
"_understand_ the email" barrier. You want a program to check what 
people type into a character-based app against a dictionary?

If so, the "aspell" is one way of achieving this. Type "info:aspell" 
into Konqueror's location bar if you have both it and aspell installed. 
If you don't, then you'll need to use YAST to install both first, at 
which point I defer to the SuSE fans on this list. Aspell has a number 
of API interfaces, including C. What language is the app written in?
