ispell to work on a new machine running macOS (see previous question), I was surprised to see it listed as one of my processes, see the image:
Process. PID. Status. Buffer. TTY. Thread ispell 8262 run -- -- Main /opt/homebrew/bin/aspell -a -m -B --encoding=utf-8
ispell seems to be related to
flyspell and I thought would be a "simple" mode. "Simply" storing a dictionary with the appropriate spelling and parsing text to find matches and misfits (indicating suggestions for the latter). I have no idea why it generates a process.
Other commands and modes do not gerate processes. I know stuff like CIDER does to watch live projects. I can't see the reason here.
Why do I have an
ispell process running? Why is it necessary?
