    Is this a GUI that will discover errors and offer suggested corrections as the user types, or is it more of a spell check function called from the command line that is performed on a text file that has already been saved to disk?

    This is just an console based application which is going to read the files from the disk(path will be specified by the user) and build an dictionary and it will correct the spelling if the user types an misspelled word

    A starting point might be: given a misspelled word, detect it and find the correctly spelled word.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    I have no idea other than using a Search engine and see what is out there.
