in reply to Yet Another Perl Aptitude Test (yapat)

Well, you know what I'd like to suggest...mabye instead of just printing the defition and waiting for input, mabye it could do it like a multiple choice thing? and it could pick random terms for the choices? for instance, instead of:
get network record given its address (weight: 1) (type an answer, '?' to see the right answer, 'score', 'save', or 'qui +t') _
it could have:
get network record given its address (weight: 1) a) socket b) bless c) getnetbyaddr d) getgrent (type an answer, '?' to see the right answer, 'score', 'save', or 'qui +t') _
And they could type in the name of the function OR the letter choice. Just a suggestion.

    Dear Erasmus,
    That's a really good idea-- I was thinking about doing something like this to make a kind of "beginner's level", then allowing the advanced level of typing in the answer.

    Ultimately, I'll wrap this up in CGI, put it on a web page, allow recording of high scores, etc etc.

    Good suggestion! I'll try and put this together pretty soon.
