A sample file of questions have been included with this distribution, so you can see how its done. The values are stored within the file, with the pipe character "|" as a separator. Please ensure that you have an extension of .psv on the end of your question/answer files. To run this program, type the following at the command prompt in the directory where you have installed QuizTaker: ./QuizTaker.pl This program also requires the File::Slurp module which can be found on your nearest CPAN mirror. =head2 Improvements =over 4 =item 1 Now includes this section of POD =item 2 Now uses the Text::Wrap module found in the core distribution of Perl, to wrap the lines of long questions =item 3 Now has a menu based interface, and allows you to choose which test you would like to take. =item 4 Cleaned up some syntax within the functions to make them look better =item 5 Fixed a bug where if the letter in the answer file is in lowercase, it would break in the Test subroutine. =item 6 Implemented the Fisher-Yates shuffling algorithm to provide for a more random sequence in the array of questions =back =head2 To Do List =over 4 =item 1 Make a graphical user interface using the Tk module =back =head2 Questions/Comments If you have any questions or comments about this program please email me at Thomas_J_Stanley@msn.com . I am always striving to make this program better. =cut
