Usage

var misspellings = require("misspellings");

// Dictionary access
var dict = misspellings.dict();
console.log(dict["adress"]);     // => "address"
console.log(dict["boaut"]);      // => "bout,boat,about"  (comma-separated string)
console.log(dict["Amercia"]);    // => "America"
console.log(dict["amercia"]);    // => undefined

// Lower-case dictionary
var lcDict = misspellings.dict({ lowerCase: true });
console.log(lcDict["Amercia"]);  // => undefined
console.log(lcDict["amercia"]);  // => "America"

// Get correct words for misspelling word
console.log(misspellings.correctWordsFor("adress"));
  // => ["address"]   (Always returns an array)
console.log(misspellings.correctWordsFor("boaut"));
  // => ["bout", "boat", "about"]
console.log(misspellings.correctWordsFor("non-exist"));
  // => []
console.log(misspellings.correctWordsFor("Amercia"));
  // => ["America"]
console.log(misspellings.correctWordsFor("amercia"));
  // => ["America"]   (Case-insensitive by default)
console.log(misspellings.correctWordsFor("amercia", { caseSensitive: true }));
  // => []

// Correct all misspellings in a string
console.log(misspellings.correct("mispelling is mispelled"));
  // => "misspelling is misspelled"
console.log(misspellings.correct("Mispelling is Mispelled"));
  // => "Misspelling is Misspelled"  (case-insensitive and preserves cases by default)
console.log(misspellings.correct("Mispelling is mispelled", { caseSensitive: true }));
  // => "Mispelling is misspelled"
console.log(misspellings.correct("Mispelling is Mispelled", { overrideCases: true }));
  // => "misspelling is misspelled"

// RegExp to search misspellings
var re = misspellings.regexp("g");
  //  ...or...
var re = new RegExp(misspellings.pattern(), "g");

console.log("mispelling is mispelled".match(re));
  // => ["mispelling", "mispelled"]
