Is there any such thing as an open source dictionary (English), so that you can run a text through it and words can be singled out as errors, and suggestions provided? Anyone knows of such a library?

The program would need to be recompiled from source, but it's probably written in either C or C++.

The dictionaries themselves are just text files, and are therefore automatically everything-compatible. ;) But you if you just want the dictionary, you'll have to write the logic yourself for looking up the words. The data structure you probably want is called a 'trie'; [google] it.
