Interesting. I would think you could find all kinds of prier are for
search and replace.  Maybe not auto-correct, but there was search &
replace, and possibly a spell checker in Word Star for CP/M. The
spell checker would have been a separate module - everything was
broken down into modules because of memory limits. (It ran in less
then 64k of RAM.)
