Or you can just use OCaml (Objective Caml), which is garbage collected and dynamic like Perl/PHP/Tcl/Ruby/Python, but also has strong inference-based type checking...

I realize that this helps improve performance, but does it prevent spelling errors?

Yes, OCaml prevents spelling mistakes in variable names and any type mis-matches, just like C/C++ type checking. In addition, it can also catch more subtle errors - my OCaml page (see original post) has a link to an example where a similar language's compiler detected an infinite loop at compile time
