The service provides spelling suggestions, including alternatives spellings, for words provided as part of a request. It can draw recommendations either from a collection of dictionaries or from a particular one specified in a request. Dictionaries focused on particular fields and topic domains help to accommodate differences in use of the same word in varying contexts.
API methods support submission of a word as a string in the request URL to return a list of close matches from the service's master dictionary. Methods also support restriction of a request to field-specific dictionaries for biology, earth sciences, mathematics, and library science. Returned data then list only the words that closely match the requested string as used within that particular discipline.
The following is a list of libraries from ProgrammableWeb's Library Directory that matched your search term. Although there many different interpretations of the word "library" among software developers, ProgrammableWeb adheres to a specific definition so as to clearly distinguish libraries from SDKs and frameworks in a way that will facilitate clean search results. In ProgrammableWeb's parlance, the term "library" is strictly used to describe a platform-specific software tool that, when installed, results in the provisioning a specific API. Conversely, SDKs are exclusively for consuming APIs and Frameworks are agnostic to specific APIs. If you think a library, SDK, API, or other asset is missing from our directory, be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
