Syntax : enchant.request_pwl_dict(text_file)



Parameter :
text_file : the path of the text file which contains the words to be included, one word per line.

Returns : a Dict object

Example 1:
The contents of the sample file “PWL.txt” are:

qwerty
jabba
gfg




# import the enchant module
import enchant
  
# the path of the text file
file_path = "PWL.txt"
  
# instantiating the enchant dictionary
# with request_pwl_dict()
pwl = enchant.request_pwl_dict(file_path)
  
# checking whether the words are
# in the new dictionary
print(pwl.check("gfg"))

Output :

True

Example 2: Adding new words to the PWL dictionary using add().




# import the enchant module
import enchant
  
# the path of the text file
file_path = "PWL.txt"
  
# printing the contents of the file
print("File contents:")
with open(file_path, 'r') as f:
    print(f.read())
  
# instantiating the enchant dictionary
# with request_pwl_dict()
pwl = enchant.request_pwl_dict(file_path)
  
# the word to be added
new_word = "asd"
  
# checking whether the word is
# in the dictionary
if pwl.check(new_word):
    print("\nThe word "+ new_word + " exists in the dictionary")
else:
    print("\nThe word "+ new_word + " does not exists in the dictionary")
  
# addin the word to the dictionary
# using add()
pwl.add("asd")
  
# printing the contents of the file
# after adding the new word
print("\nFile contents:")
with open(file_path, 'r') as f:
    print(f.read())
  
# checking for whether the word is
# in the dictionary
if pwl.check(new_word):
    print("The word "+ new_word + " exists in the dictionary")
else:
    print("The word "+ new_word + " does not exists in the dictionary")

Output :
