I'm using zsh + oh-my-zsh.

How can I make zsh to stop auto-correct for some words?

e.g. When I do make install or sudo apt-get install, it always tries to auto correct install to INSTALL. Can I make it NOT do it?

Thank you.

Have you tried using aliases like this?

alias install='nocorrect install'


alias apt-get='nocorrect apt-get'

Alternatively, this more drastic option

unsetopt correct_all
