Is there a way to implement autoexpand and autocorrect in sam in any way, i.e. for common spelling mistakes and commonly used phrases? 

I don't need anything too sophisticated.

Thanks.

I once wrote a script with several regexp substitutions, but gave up when I realised I'd need to implement an entire dictionary. I often typed 'ign' for 'ing', but words legitimately ending in 'ign' are surprisingly common. I tried to make the regexp smarter, but ended up using it on individual words, double-clicking each incorrect word and running |ac . This was quick enough in Acme, perhaps not bad in Sam. I'd attach the script, but it's long since lost now.

For sam, the best bet is to feed text into spell and separately use
dict for partial word match and definitions.

Using acme with aspell and adict helpers (/acme/bin/source) works
reasonably well. Select some text, feed it to aspell (>aspell), then
do partial lookups of the misspelled words in the adict window.

Another related convenience is to have a rule
somewhere near the bottom of your plumbing file
that pops up a window and prints the dictionary
listing for the word you plumbed. If I could
remember who it was I would thank the person
who recommended this to me because I use it all
the time.

If you are confident with the first part of a word
look(1) could be handy. You could also write a filter
that transposes letters until it finds a match in
/lib/words.  Some toys along these lines:

Having spoken of ,>spell I seem now to betting an unusual message. If I run ,>spell on my current file within sam, I get (sam: more in /tmp/sam.err) . Anyone know what this means and how it can be corrected?

Your error mean spell's  output is too large to fit within sam's command window.

I don't have much experience with spell but I'd suggest correcting some of the typos found and running again or opening via B /tmp/sam.err and examining the typos found.

Thank you Silas. You have helped solve the problem. I was trying to access this file after I had exited sam, rather than from within it.

i would use ,|spell which replaces the current window with sam’s output, then, having taken note of the errors, type u to undo and fix the mistakes.

this is just personal choice of course.
