 P: 376 Hey guys A lot of my classes this semester (parastiology, cell biology, ecology) are a lot of definitions that I need to have nailed down solid. I'm looking for a little definitions quiz program that I can use, I'd like to be able to enter the word and definition and have it ask my either the word or definition and I'd have to answer it. I don't have to be able to type it in, just show it to me then I hit a button and it tells me the answer (I'll know if I'm right or not, I dont need the program to tell me). If I cant' find something, I'd like to write a simple one in Delphi on WinXP. What type of data type would you think I should do this in? Should I do a big array of like [1..255] or something of Strings? I could put the definitions and words in a txtfile and have each separated by a (#10#14). I took a Java class a few years ago and we learned about vectors which were like dynamic datatypes and you could define them as you needed them instead of making arrays. I don't know what the equivelant is in Delphi (I'm so far out of the programming loop it's not funny). Is there a better datatype than just an array, in delphi? Anyways.. I just need to learn my junk :) Thank you! Aychamo
 P: 173 Hi I dont know anything about Delphi,but in c++/VB/c#/Java etc (i think in all programming languages )you neednt keep the answers as strings. Just write everything int a file in a suitable format like $Defn1 blah blah blah blah blah bla....$Defn2 blah blah blah blah blah bla.... Then just read the suitable Defn and answers Pseudocode: Read text file till $is reached Display everything till newline as question .... Display everything until next$ as answer This can be implemented as a loop easily For input program replace Disply by Input,etc..
 P: 499 Delphi has a TStringList type, which stores a list of strings, but also has methods for dealing with strings of the form name=value The TValueListEditor component stores its values in a StringList, and so looks like what you need
