Please help beta test my program

I have created a toki pona word processing program for a school computing project. As part of the write up I am required to test the program. One way of testing it would be to give it to the community of toki pona speakers to evaluate.

Please download and install the attached program and give me any feedback on how it works, what you think of it and how it can be improved.

ale li pona.

mi sitelen e ni kepeken ilo 'nimi pi toki pona'. jan Zak li pali e ilo ni. So a onl tpin But lettes
So far a few comments;
1. sporadically (see end of line above) letters not in tp don't come through. At other times they do. I assume they ought never occur.
2. Spell checker has some bad data in it, e.g., 'sitelen' is in as 'stelen' There may be others.
3. Spell checker does not ignore punctuation but marks a word as wrong it next to one ('nimi' and 'pona' above)
4. Some of the labels need correcting : 'ala nimi', 'poka' for "next"?, not sure about 'kule' for "select," 'sona' for suggestions.
5. A number of 380 errors have come up, ending each session prematurely "Invalid [goes by too fast to read]"

Thanks, WinZip liked the second try just fine.

BTW, just because this consists entirely of critical remarks doesn't mean I don't like it both in concept and execution. Nice job!

Post source code (just the code behind the form) or the class file. I can't decompile VB6. Using my code ESP, I can see you wrote something like..

string[] wordsToLookup = Split(foo," ")

You need to also do something like

wordToLookUp[i] = wordToLookUp[i].Replace(".","")
wordToLookUp[i] = wordToLookUp[i].Replace(",","")
wordToLookUp[i] = wordToLookUp[i].Replace(":","")

It's been a few years since I wrong VB6, so I might be off on my syntax.

I unzipped it twenty times to learn that the .cab contains a .exe that didn't even need an installer. It functions as portable app, if you just use these \tokipona_rar\toki pona\toki pona\Package\Package\toki pona\*.*
