Enabling spell checking for bash


shopt is a built-in command that controls shell behavior. In order to customize our shell environment we add the shopt commands to our .bashrc file.

shopt -s cdspell

This will correct the typing mistakes for cd command. eg: We need to go to directory testing/default. But by mistake type

# cd tesring/default
testing/default

Since we have set cdspell this typing error will be corrected and we will be directed to the correct directory.
