The attached patch fixes spelling mistakes found on various comments, mainly in /Lib/. I choose not to correct things like 'everytime' since the main goal was to improve readability and not turn useful technical comments into English litterature. I hope this is fine.

[These were found using a script, if anyone wants I could post it somewhere after I polish it].

'everytime' is not an English word and should be corrected; hardcoded should be hard-coded. Could you at least describe your script. My fantasy is being able to check text parts of files with the help of a program such as LibreOffice.

Terry Reedy : The scripts needs to be improved and I won't be able to access my computer until mid August so I don't think I will be able to do anything until then. But the script should be able to do that if I work on it a bit. I would use python enchant rather than libre-office for spell-checking and would need a text file about words specifics to python that should not be reported. I'll work on it once I get back (8th August) and when it is a bit more polished I'll update this post.

Hmm... once I actually created a short (<50 lines) script which spell-checked the comments. Problem is that many technical words (GCC, for example) were marked incorrect by the spell-checker (Enchant), resulting in about 1000+ "incorrectly" spelled words.

See issue 18705 for a basic script.

Févry, do you want to make an updated patch that includes also "everytime" as suggested by Terry?
I think some of the typos of the current patch have also been fixed by the other patches you submitted.
