Description: Enter as many questions & answers as you’d like and then this project will quiz you on those questions. (A question can be a standard question or, like the genesis of this project, a word in one language and the answer can be the equivalent word in another language. Or you can even use a question with multiple choice answers and simply put the right letter or number corresponding to the correct answer in the answer field.) It will store all of the questions & answers in a table and it writes & reads the questions & answers to a .plist file using the “user defaults” tool so they are persistent through relaunches. There are some features in the preferences for randomizing the quiz, using a basic timer, and repeating questions. Please note that during the quiz the answers must be exact (spelling, punctuation, etc. all count) to get a correct response.
We may get around to adding an import/export feature for batch importing/exporting question & answer lists; improving the timer to set a maximum timeout; adding an option to move to the next question on an incorrect answer (right now it keeps asking the same question until you get it right); and adding more bells & whistles (literally) such as a buzz for an incorrect answer and a bell ding for a correct one; and generally improving & optimizing the code (it’s a bit of a mess right now and not commented at all).
