========================================================================

Flashcards is meant to be called from the command line.

Type "flashcards --help"into the command line once you've installed it.

========================================================================
GENERAL USAGE
========================================================================
Once you've installed the program
1) Open up 'cmd' if you are on Windows computer, or the 'terminal' if you are
on a Mac or Linux computer.
2) Enter "flashcards" or "flashcards --help" for more info.

When you are adding answers in the program, you can add multiple choices.
Seperate every possible answer with a comma.

NOTE:
Flashcards creates a folder in your Documents folder regardless of your OS.
It is called "flashcards" and inside of it are two files:

1) defaults.conf - You add true or false values
for whichever data method your prefer. This allows you to bypass the
root menu whenever you call flashcards.

Example defaults.conf contents:
csv=false
sql=true

This would have the program start in sql mode automatically, unless
you specify that you want the csv version with the csv flag (--csv).


2) flashcards.db
This is created the first time you use the sqlite3 version of flashcards.
This is where the "sets" of flashcards are stored.

CSV MODE AND SQL MODE

1) CSV - Comma Separated Values
This mode creates a data.csv file in the current working directory.

Advantages:
Easier to edit by yourself - without the program
More portable

If you want to edit your flashcards yourself:
Open the data.csv file, which is probably in your home folder.
Each line contains a question and it's answer/s.
The first value is the question, and the rest of the values in that
line are the answers.
Each value is separated by commas. Spacing matters, so be careful.

2) SQL - Database storage
This mode creates a ".flashcards.db" file in your home folder.

Advantages:
Allows for storing SETS of flashcards.
Provides a more advanced editor.
Better for long term storage.

========================================================================
CHANGESv2.3.1 (Current)
========================================================================
1) Moved root folder to Documents folder on Mac, Windows, and Linux

========================================================================
CHANGESv2.3
========================================================================

========================================================================
CHANGESv2.2
========================================================================
1) MAJOR: Implemented sqlite3 database option.
2) initial menu asks if the user wants a sqlite3db in their home directo
ry OR a csv file in their cwd.
3) This leads them to the corresponding quiz. This means that there are
two bundled version of the quiz.
4) The quiz_sql.py script relies on db_api, a script a sqlite3 framework
class designed for the quizzes' use.
5) Implemented csv.writer to writer() class in quiz_csv.
6) Switching zipped lists to a dictionary in csv quiz.
7) Added flags for CLI args.
