I have taken the best parts of all the versions and re-written them in what I believe to be relatively clean code. I have not yet benchmarked this but I expect it to be very close to your current best. Here is a list of features:
  • Command line argument parsing
  • Ability to handle non-dictionary words (configurable)
  • Ability to handle absense of Text::LevenshteinXS (automatic)
  • Ability to use different compiled databases (configurable)
  • Ability to create new compiled databases (configurable)
  • Speed and non-duplicated code
