Manual seems to need "more" emphasis on filename and not filenames or wildcards.

Added these fixes to aspell.1 and aspell.texi to help reduce questions and bug submissions concerning filenames.

See:

Debian #368456: aspell: poor argument parsing; aspell check ./1 ./2 exits indicating success without checking ./2

Debian Bug report logs - #368622
aspell: skips files matching *.c

    Maybe, but I don't like where/how you state it. At very least it should be included after the primary description, not before it.

    Moved.
    ..but seems disjointed to mention options, then files, then options again.

    I added a check to the aspell utility so that it will now abort if there is more than one file.

    I am rejecting you patch for "more" emphasis on filename since it just seams out of place.

    I accepted the minor grammar fixed for Aspell.texi

    Also in man page changed "Spell\-check a file" to "Spell\-check a single file"

    Expect these changes in Aspell 0.60.5 due very soon now.

    Patch works out better than a comment in the manual which usually get quickly forgotten.
    Glad you managed to squeeze it in before 0.60.5 got out.
