Like in "mis"? ;-)
If you don't need to use bash, you may want to try tcsh. It has a built
in spell checker that you can activate in .cshrc. I once thought it was
a good idea and used it several years ago, but soon it annoyed me to no
With bash, you may be able to get that feature by hooking some program
into /etc/bash_command_not_found, but I'm not sure if there is a tiny
tool that you can use out of the box. Hey, wait - there is tcsh! If you
configure your .cshrc or .tcshrc to do autocorrection and then use
tcsh -c "$1" || return 127
in /etc/bash_command_not_found - yes, that might work, no matter how
sick it looks. :-)
