# memscript: Command line utility for memorizing scriptures or any other text

[ education, program ] [ Propose Tags ]

"memscript filename" Run memscript with a UTF-8 (or ASCII since ASCII is a subset of UTF8) plain text file. Try to exactly guess the text line by line. If your guess is wrong it will show you a diff like output comparing your guess and the original verse. This will repeat until you get all the verses right. For the test data I included four beloved Psalms (1,23,121,127) from the Old Testament, each in Revised Korean Version (RKV) and New International Version (NIV), which I happened to have had to memorize. You can use it for any other text you'd want to memorize, such as your favorite poems, quotes, or whatsoever. No craft or ticks, really simple and straightforward utility but serves well for the purpose. I used readline because that was the only sane way I know of handling multibyte inputs.

Description: "memscript <filename>"

Run memscript with a UTF-8 (or ASCII since ASCII is a subset of UTF8)
plain text file.  Try to exactly guess the text line by line.  If
your guess is wrong it will show you a diff like output comparing
your guess and the original verse.  This will repeat until you get
all the verses right.

For the test data I included four beloved Psalms (1,23,121,127)
from the Old Testament, each in Revised Korean Version (RKV) and
New International Version (NIV), which I happened to have had to
memorize.  You can use it for any other text you'd want to memorize,
such as your favorite poems, quotes, or whatsoever.

No craft or ticks, really simple and straightforward utility but
serves well for the purpose.  I used readline because that was
the only sane way I know of handling multibyte inputs.
