By default, demandoc
parses standard input and outputs only
text nodes, preserving line and column position. Escape sequences are omitted
from the output.
Its arguments are as follows:
- Output a word list. This outputs each word of text on its

parsing or formatting a file. The output databases are corrupt and should
be removed .
The traditional usage of demandoc
is for spell-checking

$ demandoc -w file.1 | spell -b
