Text::Aspell provides a Perl interface to the GNU Aspell library.  The
GNU Aspell library provides access to system spelling libraries,
including a spell checker.
This module is to meet the need of looking up many words, one at a
time, in a single session.  It is a perl xs interface which should
provide good performance in comparison to forking the aspell program
for every word.
