This release is not working once installed with
The fix will come soon with a new release.
For the time being, using the source code should still work.
Import the flashcards package from the directory it's saved in, and it should still be working.
Study has three components: - - -

1) Added append mode for and gave it a menu.
2) Fixed incorrect package name in README.txt
3) Moved to
4) Added line breaks to menu UI in
5) Improved error handling with semantic errors.
6) Improved documentation
7) Commented on some code

python install
That should do the trick.

importing flashcards creates a file in the current working directory.
flashcards uses the local file in the cwd.
flashcards may truncate the existing, so be careful with your quizzes.

If installed:
in the python shell:

and uses them to quiz the user. That is all.

This is a list of strings, containing the questions.

This is a list of strings and/or tuples with strings in them.
knows how to tell the difference between tuples and strings and handl
e them.


All this script does is provide an interface for quickly writing questio
ns to to make things easier. With this script, you won't even ne
ed to touch yourself.


When the user is prompted to enter a question, it is stored as a string
using the raw_input() statement.

When the user is prompted to enter an answer, it is stored with the inp
ut() statement.

Encapsulate the answer with apostrophes or quotation marks.

Write the answer as a tuple.

Encapsulate the whole statement with parentheses, and each value ne
eds to be encapsulated as if you were entering a single answer, with
apostrophes or quotation marks.


Just a menu interface for user convenience, it makes use of all the scripts in the package.
