I'm using an application called CAST that outputs reports about code.
Once of the outputs is any code comments.

I'm importing the report into FM. Natuarally, I'm spell checking the
document and sometimes I get a hit on the code comment, similar to
the following:

"Exectute on all entities if no entity type specified".

In the document, would you correct the spelling of "Exectute" or
would you send a note to the developer. wait for him to fix it, and
if he does, then make the change in the doc?.
