Quiz::Flashcards - Cross-platform modular flashcard GUI application


Created out of the need to aid in language studies while being able to quickly adapt the program for a higher learning efficiency than most showy flashcard applications allow. This application focuses not on teaching new material, but on training and reinforcing already learned material.

It uses wxPerl for the GUI, which should make it work on most major desktop platforms. Additionally it stores data about the user's certainty and speed in answers in a SQLite database located in the user's data directory.

Flashcard sets as well as additional data like sound files to go along with the sets will be available as seperate modules in the Quiz::Flashcards::Sets:: and Quiz::Flashcards::Audiobanks:: namespaces.


    use Edu::Flashcards;



Starts the application itself.
