I would love to have a medical spell dictionary in
Currently, I have a lot of medical terms in my own personal English dictionary right now. However, using an official medical dictionary would be a superior solution.
What I tried
So I tried adding the following to my
This line of code comes directly from the vim documentation.
It is findable under
:help spl. (
vim version 8.1).
I restarted vim and I got a message that it was not installed.
To resolve this, I ran
:set spell to interactively down the spelling files.
No luck on that:
:set spell Cannot find spell file for "medical" in utf-8 Do you want me to try downloading it? Y Downloading medical.utf-8.spl... :!curl 'http://ftp.vim.org/pub/vim/runtime/spell/medical.utf-8.spl' -L -o '/tmp/vYgP5zs/4.spl' % Total % Received % Xferd Average Speed Time Time Time Current Dload Upload Total Spent Left Speed "/tmp/vYgP5zs/4.spl" 9 lines, 314 character Could not find it, trying medical.ascii.spl... :!curl 'http://ftp.vim.org/pub/vim/runtime/spell/medical.ascii.spl' -L -o '/tmp/vYgP5zs/4.spl' % Total % Received % Xferd Average Speed Time Time Time Current Dload Upload Total Spent Left Speed "/tmp/vYgP5zs/4.spl" 9 lines, 314 character Sorry, downloading failed Warning: Cannot find word list "medical.utf-8.spl" or "medical.ascii.spl"
So I tried searching the relevant ftp.vim.org link, and indeed there are not listed there.
What is an alternative route to installing these medical spelling files?
:mkspellto create the files.
