how to integrate ispell/aspell to command line interface

Hello All. All of us do many typos at CLI and this is really irritating. So is there a way by which we can integrate the spellchecker ispell/aspell or someothere similar tool to do spell checking and _RECTIFICATION_ on the fly threby saving a lot or our precious time/typing . I think there might be some way out to integrate ispell or get the job done in some other way, which I'm not aware of. Can anyone please point to the exact method of doing the same. Thanks a lot.

So once this spellecheker is running at the background as a daemon, both of the following commands give the same result withour any error warnings like command not found et al.
[harry@localhost]locate abc.txt
[harry@localhost]locaet abc.txt
Mark the spelling mistake for the locate command in the second code snip. Thank you.

There are spelling correction features in zsh and tcsh. You could examine how they have been fit into those shells.

See man zshall and man tcsh for more information ... cheers, makyo
