scspell -- a spell checker for source code
I was surprised to find that there didn't seem to be any open source spell checking applications targeted at source code. So I wrote one. It is not limited to comments or literal strings: meaningfulVariableNames are_also_checked. I'm a little disturbed at how well it seems to work in practice, given the exceedingly simple core algorithm.

Special thanks to my spelling-impaired coworkers for their vast corpora of testing material.
