20 rules of perfect question

HOWTO import text file

Formatting rules

I use to use text format for preparation of my quizz, easy for the web and maintaince, so here we go

/ forward slash mean comment
// double slash in the text means new line
C: category
Q: question
A: answer
3: field reserved for Title 
4: field reserved for URL - references link
5: field empty for now
6: field empty for now

you can omit 5: and 6: wouldn't be any harm

Note every field should be in ONE line, so in the wiki DO NOT format with additional line breaks, or you will get err on database compilation!!!

Text file conversion

Download smconv

  • to create pdb file run in command line
smconv.exe filename (i.e. smconv.exe kaplan.txt)
  • it will create filename.pdb (i.e. kaplan.pdb)
  • install pdb file onto you Palm pilot
  • it will show up in the supermemo databases as "converted filename" (i.e. "converted kaplan.txt")
  • You can create a master database and name it "Kaplan", then rename "converted kaplan.txt" to the "Kaplan"
  • new converted database have fields name like field1 field2 ...

convert it to

field1 -> Q:
field2 -> A:
field3 -> Title:
field4 -> URL:

it will make you life easy when you will be ready to correct templates

  • edit templates (default ones is pretty ugly)
  • when you update you text file and recreate pdb and install it on the palm you may merge the databases,
    • it will picks up template from destination database
