comment Should a comparison method ever return the same type back as it's comparing?
Returning the same type would make sense if the method's description said "return the argument which is larger." Specificity is the key to almost everything in this field, and here it would have let you sanity check the prototype against the intent. A pox on whoever wrote the problem for not doing that.

comment Algorithm to detect if a word is spelled correctly
English spelling is not a regular language, so you're unlikely to have a high degree of success with trying to find misspellings using an algorithm of any reasonable size. I would suggest looking at the sources for a number of common spell checkers (ispell, aspell) and finding an algorithm that works for you. You'll find that most use a tree structure built from a dictionary but is relatively compact.

That's pretty much it. Confirming documentation would be in a dictionary.

comment How can I implement an 'if' statement in an interpreter?
@RobertHarvey: Commented, no less. That source isn't the original, but it's an excellent teaching tool. I'd love to find something similar for CP/M. Edit: well, that was easy.
