Spellauncher input example


hello guys im new on rust programming .
im trying to write a simple program that takes word from input stdin and check the spell and respond the corect anwser if the word is wrong spelled.i did little search and i found a library “ispell”.
i wrote the program on my own knowlege but im getting error .any help can be so usefull for me.and i dont want just a correction on my program i need to know what is my problem exactly.tnx

extern crate ispell;

use ispell::SpellLauncher;
use std::io;

fn main(){
let mut checker = SpellLauncher::new()
let mut errors = stdin().read_line()

io::stdin().read_line(&mut errors);
for e in errors{
    println!("'{}' (pos: {}) is misspelled!", &e.misspelled, e.position);
    if !e.suggestions.is_empty() {
        println!("Maybe you meant '{}'?", &e.suggestions[0]);



The code you’ve posted is not complete so it’s hard to tell what problem you’re having just from the code. In general, you should probably explain the exact problem you’re having. Including the actual errors would help us help you also.

I would complete the code starting with passing a buffer to stdin().read_line() and work the problem from there.


the error says in second one input must be iterable for running in for condition.so i figured out i must change the errors variable to integer not stirng .so this is far i got reach .

12 | let mut errors = Iterator;
| ^^^^^^^^ unresolved name
= help: trait Iterator cannot be used as an expression

error[E0277]: the trait bound std::string::String: std::iter::Iterator is not satisfied
–> src/main.rs:15:5
15 | for e in errors{
| ^ starting here…
16 | | println!("’{}’ (pos: {}) is misspelled!", &e.misspelled, e.position);
17 | | if !e.suggestions.is_empty() {
18 | | println!(“Maybe you meant ‘{}’?”, &e.suggestions[0]);
19 | | }
20 | | }

^ …ending here: the trait std::iter::Iterator is not implemented for std::string::String
= note: std::string::String is not an iterator; maybe try calling .iter() or a similar method
= note: required by std::iter::IntoIterator::into_iter


Is your code in a repo that we can read?


I think the problem is you forget to run checker.check(...) to convert the string to errors:

Here “errors” don’t correspond to the errors but to a string read from the input. You probably want something like this (not tested):

let mut line = String::new();
io::stdin().read_line(&mut line).expect("Could not read line from stdin");
let errors = checkers.check(&line).expect("Error checking errors");
for e in errors { 


the problem before is solved but now it says cant read the dictanary from /src/lib/aspel-0.60/ .so i checked there is no dict file there for reading.i download en_US dict and put that to directory so i tried that but same promlem again.and i tought my structure is the problem but i run the sample on git hub :

again that problem comes.

and this is the console result for compiling :

In this example it looks to the “en_GB” dictionary, not “en_US”. You probably want to change (or remove) the .dictionary("en_GB") line.
