Fix some spelling mistakes in comments:
permanentely ==> permanently
wont ==> won't
remaning ==> remaining
succed ==> succeed
shouldnt ==> shouldn't
alpha-numeric ==> alphanumeric
storeing ==> storing
funtion ==> function
documenation ==> documentation
Determin ==> Determine
intepreted ==> interpreted
ammount ==> amount
obious ==> obvious
interupts ==> interrupts
occured ==> occurred
asssociated ==> associated
taking into acount ==> taking into account
squence ==> sequence
stil ==> still
contiguos ==> contiguous
matchs ==> matches
