FlashCard/Dictionary Program Idea by a Beginner
I have an idea for a FlashCard program that flashes the definition of a word, and they must guess it. The user should be able to pick and choose which words will be displayed in the Flash Card program, as well as add words of their own to the dictionary. This program will be a windows application running on a local machine, no need for any web stuff.
My question is, what method would be best for storing the dictionary words and definitions? I was thinking an XML file, though perhap it may get rather legnthy. Perhaps there are other methods out there that I am not familiar with? Can anyone help?
Also it would be nice to be able to load pre-made dictionaries of Spanish and German and English and such. I have searched everywhere hoping for a dictionary in xml or another format that my program can load with no problems, and the user can choose which words they wish to load into the FlashCard portion. Is there any pre-made dictionary databases or xml files out there? i have looked everywhere? Perhaps I am not looking correctly!
Any help will be greatly appreciated! Thank you Thank you thank you!
