I am running the latest version of XAMPP for Linux, and wanted to try and validate user passwords by checking them against the aspell dictionary. I looked online at php.net and found that I needed pspell and that I needed to compile PHP with "--with-pspell[=dir]" option. Looking into the XAMPP configure command, I see that pspell was not used.
1. Is this something that others may want/use as XAMPP is used more widely? If so can we get that option built in to the install?
2. Can this be done without actually needing that option?
Basically I am letting the users change their password on my site, but I want to verify that it does not exist as a dictionary word - thus the aspell.
Thanks in advance,
