    Note that there are also a few "pragmatic" ports of Hunspell into other languages (in order to use it in environments where C++ dependency is undesireable), namely WeCantSpell.Hunspell in C# and nspell in JS (very incomplete); and aforementioned nuspell can also be considered a "port" (from legacy C++ to a modern one).
