Pod::Wordlist -- English words that come up in Perl documentation


  None!  Take that!


Pod::Wordlist is used by Pod::Spell, providing a set of words (as keys in the hash %Pod::Spell::Wordlist) that are English jargon words that come up in Perl documentation, but which are not to be found in general English lexicons. (For example: autovivify, backreference, chroot, stringify, wantarray.)

You can also use this wordlist with your word processor by just pasting Pod/'s content into your wordprocessor, deleting the leading Perl code so that only the wordlist remains, and then spellchecking this resulting list and adding every word in it to your private lexicon.


You are welcome to send me your wordlists too, for possible incorporation into this wordlist. I can take them only in ASCII.

Note that the scope of this file is only English, specifically American English. (But you may find in useful to incorporate into your own lexicons, even if they are for other dialects/languages.)
