The htmlArea 2 & 3 editors have been discontinued.

We've made these forums available as a read-only reference and knowledge-base for people using or developing editors based on htmlArea 2 or 3.

Anyone who is interested in taking over version 2 or 3 is free to do so. All we ask is that you choose a new name that doesn't have "htmlarea" in it to avoid confusion with this site. We'll even give you a link in the directory to make it easier for people to find you. If you are developing or hosting an htmlArea based-editor under a new name, please submit it to our directory.

You are probably best of installing the Perl version made by Mishoo on a *nix system. As you will see in the BETA forum for V3 several people (including myself) are working on a PHP version of the spellchecker. There are also alot of problems with the Windows version of the Spellchecker mainly since most of the versions use PHP's pspell which has a "compilation" fault for the win32 platform. Atleast that is what I have concluded after alot of googling and alot of testing with this command.

Maby this will be fixed in later builds of PHP for windows, but at the moment it doesnt look good.

From the text::aspell source:

WINDOWS USERS

Randy Kobes has provided a PPM and the following instructions for installing
Text::Aspell on Windows. Thanks very much Randy.

For installing on Win32, first get and install the "Full installer"
executable at

http://aspell.net/win32/

this will install Aspell into a location such as C:\Program Files\Aspell. You
will also need to fetch and install at least one of the precompiled
dictionaries found on the same page.

Make sure that the path to the Aspell bin directory (e.g. C:\Program
Files\Aspell\bin\) is in your PATH environment variable. For help with
setting your path see "set environment variables" in the Windows Help
Utility. You may need to reboot or open a new shell window after setting
your path. The Aspell .dll file must be located in the PATH before using
Text::Aspell.

Then, to install Text::Aspell, type at a DOS prompt (all on one line)

C:\> ppm install http://theoryx5.uwinnipeg.ca/ppms/Text-Aspell.ppd

for an ActivePerl 8xx version, or

C:\> ppm install http://theoryx5.uwinnipeg.ca/ppmpackages/Text-Aspell.ppd

for an ActivePerl 6xx version.

If you wish to build Text::Aspell from source:

If you want to build Text::Aspell yourself, you'll need a C compiler, which
must be the same one that your Perl is built with (for ActivePerl, this means
VC++ 6). Assuming you have that, in addition to the "Full installer" binary
package at http://aspell.net/win32/, you'll also need to get and install the
aspell-dev package (also located at http://aspell.net/win32/), which contains
the necessary .lib and .h files needed to compile the Perl module.

Like above, make sure the PATH environment variable points to the location of
the installed Aspell .dll file before building Text::Aspell.

Installation then proceeds as described for the Unix version:

perl Makefile.PL
nmake
nmake test
nmake install

with the additional requirement of passing to 'perl Makefile.PL' the
necessary arguments (e.g. INC and LIBS) to specify the locations of the lib
and header files, if these were installed in a non-standard location. Make
sure that if a non-standard location was used that this is added to your PATH
environment variable before running the tests.


Worked for me. =)

Re: [Herris] Spell Check Plug-in [In reply to] Can't Post

Hi Herris

I have followed all your instructions and everything seemed to install fine.

I have given the Plugins/SpellChecker/ executable permissions but I get the following error when I run the spell checker:

%1 is not a valid Win32 application.

Should I be using a different plugin? I am running Windows 2000 server with IIS.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Jono.

Re: [JonoB] Spell Check Plug-in [In reply to] Can't Post

Hmm... Might need to change the path of first line in spell-check-logic.cgi to the path of your perl executable. Should look something like:

#! c:\perl\bin\perl.exe -w

Also might want to check to see if the perl executable is in your executable path.

Hi

Thanks for your reply, I have now got the cgi executing by changing its file extension to .pm.

It is now throwing an XML error, I have looked in C:/Perl/lib and there is no XML folder where do I get this from to install?

Thanks again.

Jono.

If you have active state perl installed you do

ppm install XML::DOM

If you don't have it installed I don't know. =(

Re: [Herris] Spell Check Plug-in [In reply to] Can't Post

Hi Herris

Thanks for being so patient. I have made sure it installed by doing

ppm install http://theoryx5.uwinnipeg.ca/ppms/XML-DOM.ppd

This has all installed fine, when I now run the spell checker I get:

CGI Error
The specified CGI application misbehaved by not returning a complete set of HTTP headers. The headers it did return are:


not well-formed (invalid token) at line 1, column 48, byte 48 at C:/Perl/site/lib/XML/Parser.pm line 187

Any ideas?

Thanks

Jono.

Re: [JonoB] Spell Check Plug-in [In reply to] Can't Post

Hmm... Not sure.

You might want to do ppm upgrade and make sure that there aren't any more update versions of any of your packages.

Especially XML::DOM.

I didn't get mine from theoryx.uwinnnipeg.ca. There was a version from active state available.

If there is a newer version you can do

ppm upgrade -install

and it will install the newest of all your packages or

ppm upgrade -install XML::DOM

just to upgrade xml::dom.

Though... I am not sure that that is your problem at all.

Also you want to make sure that the aspell dll is in your enviromental variable path.

Its kind of working... [In reply to] Can't Post

Hi

I have got it working with plain text, but if the page contains any tags like <img src=""> I get an error. Can this plugin only be used with plain text?

you need to download and install the dictionary separately.

look on the same site you got the win32 install from

Yeah I got to the same place - fudged through all the ASP:TEXT ASPell stuff and downloaded dictionaries, but no matter what I do, I can't get any dictionaries to show up when I'm in the editor...

Unsure

Re: [chrisemersonnc] Spell Check Plug-in [In reply to] Can't Post

I pretty much went through the same steps on my windows 2003 server, and I can't get the dictionary to show in the drop down menu.

I've installed the dictionary. Is there a special place we've got to move it to.

I've read a bunch of posts. I'd hate to give up on this one after getting this far.

Did anyone figure this out?

Ok Kids,

I got it together.

This tutorial helped, but I had to go back through it and make sure I did everything right:

http://www.interactivetools.com/iforum/Open_Source_C3/htmlArea_v3.0_-_Beta_Release_F14/The_IDIOTS_Guide_to_installing_Spell_Checker_%28Windows%2C_of_COURSE%29_P29845

After step 4b I needed to reboot my server for the change to take effect.

Also, I needed to install the dictionary directly into C:/Program Files/Aspell.

Thanks for everyone's posts, especially larsoncc who wrote the windows tutorial.

That tutorial really helped!

After using it I actually got the spell checker working but the dictionary wouldn't load.

To fix the dictionary problem I used this fix:

http://www.interactivetools.com/iforum/Open_Source_C3/htmlArea_v3.0_-_Add-Ons_F23/HTMLArea_SpellCheck_dictionary_problem_solved_P33144/



worked like a dream

Thanks All!!
