NAME
       quiz - test your knowledge

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/games/quiz [ -i file ] [ -t ] [ category1 category2 ]

DESCRIPTION
       Quiz  gives  associative  knowledge  tests on various subjects.	It asks items chosen from
       category1 and expects answers from category2.  If no categories are specified, quiz  gives
       instructions and lists the available categories.

       Quiz  tells  a correct answer whenever you type a bare newline.	At the end of input, upon
       interrupt, or when questions run out, quiz reports a score and terminates.

       The -t flag specifies `tutorial' mode, where missed  questions  are  repeated  later,  and
       material is gradually introduced as you learn.

       The -i flag causes the named file to be substituted for the default index file.	The lines
       of these files have the	syntax:
	      line	= category newline | category `:' line
	      category	= alternate | category `|' alternate
	      alternate = empty | alternate primary
	      primary	= character | `[' category `]' | option
	      option	= `{' category `}'

       The first category on each line of an index file names an information file.  The remaining
       categories  specify  the  order	and  contents of the data in each line of the information
       file.  Information files have the same syntax.  Backslash `\' is used  as  with	sh(1)  to
       quote  syntactically significant characters or to insert transparent newlines into a line.
       When either a question or its answer is empty, quiz will refrain from asking it.

FILES
       /usr/games/quiz.k/*

BUGS
       The construct `a|ab' doesn't work in an information file.  Use `a{b}'.
