Related @SPELLS (similar to SPELL but uses SAS instead of SCRIPT/VS)

The @SPELLS macro will check for spelling errors and will flag them using INFOLINE.  This edit macro does not require your input to have been saved, no changes will be made to your input.

Lines with spelling errors will be displayed.  All other lines will be excluded.

The best use of this macro in on text documentation information.  However running any material through it such as JCL, clists, etc.  can prove useful in correcting spelling errors in comment text.

The INFOLINE, NOTELINE and MSGLINE containing misspelled word information can be removed by simply typing in RESET on the command line.

The macro @SPELLS will display suggest word fixes, unlike SPELL which does not.  These suggestions are limited to the first line of suggestions.

@SPELLS uses the SAS master dictionary and also an auxiliary dictionary SYS6.SAS607.AUXDICT.  Spelling rules differ somewhat in SAS.  The letters @,#, and $ are not letters and cannot be included in dictionary words.  Although SAS permits numbers within the spelling of words, we will eliminate such words for simplicity when displaying misspelled words.


NXAffects only lines that are NOT EXCLUDED from the display.

Internal Aspects:    [TSO code] 
  1. An intermediate file is created which contains your current work space.
  2. SCRIPT is run against the intermediate file. Another dataset is created which contains misspelled words, the locations of the words and suggested spellings.
  3. The misspelled words dataset is processed to add NOTELINE text to your original file in edit.
  4. No changes have actually been made to your data. You may remove the NOTELINE and MSGLINE text by typing RESET on your command line.
If you want to see the actual files generated for processing then invoke @SPELLS with the EDIT option.

This macro was created to use SAS dictionary and supply INFOLINEs similar to what has been provided by our version of the SPELL macro.
