        * weirdnesses occur when trying the scroll the window, and highlight
          text while scrolling in the window
      . * errors with datex.db come back as file not exist messages
      . * errors writing to the records dir could be more informative
          about what isn't writable
        & make the preview a vaild TeX/HTML file
        & make it possible to answer all dialogs with keystrokes 
        + GUI......To include Tools/MCtools/Labeling/Units........
        + ? On-line help?
        + font menu, bigger, smaller, (choose font?)
        + new main editing window that doesn't show import code, just a 
          listing of the imported files and their settings
        + save configuration options to the ${HOME}/.quizzerrc
        + preview a section's .dvi file

        + continuous update of what the set looks like
        + print by student (staple)
        o generate errors on the fly
        
Grader
        + throw warnings when set.db files are strange (non standard)
        + create class summaries for a specifiable range of sections
          and sets
        + class summaries, reduce duplicated code
        + subjective grading, see responses for previous numerical
        + subjective grading, check if Stu id already has score
        + hgr all students one question
        + ability to specify what the generated report looks like
        + a way to easily deal with missed exams
        + Save -> Next
        + grade by CODE
        + see submissions

qzparse
        * memory leak (minor now)
        * fix -H option so that it works (output can be viewed with a browser)
        + don't seg fault on malformed options
      . + options to print in alphabetical order, (maybe options to select
          how many students to print at a time, and the sorting order?)

        + make the web page header something generated in HWTop (the series
          of buttons would need functions like problem() to generate them)
          this may also need/want a transitions page to be generated? (Grading
          answers . . . Please wait. [Reload]), maybe instead have functions
          like server_name(), menu_value(), etc, and write some standard
          web() routines to mimic the already occuring header.
        + remove the genration of as much html as possible
        + a "FastWeb" option (display just the first 10 -20 words of problem

          basis.
        + new type, not hgr can have zero pts, (one_of_8 changed)
        + give an average for the set
        + improved handling of errors
        + resume scoring, don't trash scorer.output file
        + status bar on how many to go
        + allow student access to what they bubbled on the exam/quiz

        + large number of matches (more than 6), give option of
          skipping or pick stunum, name, CODE from list of possibles
        + find students that use the same CODE (cheating)

Tools and MCtools

           localize better)
        * for 0F format, output 90. not 90
     !  * /IF (flag) breaks
        & allow code to internally support an arbitrary number of problems
          (most problems are in the wgt/pcr arrays and in the file handling 
           code)
        & Make /DIS() in /HIN as useful as normal /DIS()
        + /ANS() contains a test condition, student supplies variables with

Internal Cleaning
      ! * the third line isn't ignored when setting entries in setX.db

          occur in a row.
        + change the bargraph generater to take -option value pairs
        o eliminate MAX_SECTION_SIZE, MAX_SECTION_COUNT, MAX_PROB_PER_SET
          and maybe some of the temp buffer limits.

make it easy ish to create problems for this utility)

6.0 start using the HTML equation spec instead of the current gif method

5.0+ a web method of doing the Library problem addition.

5.0+ Tool to make a whole library printable

Make a single depository of all problems

Track statistics on how often problems get used in homeowrks, exams, quizzes.

add a reports directory for manager data to auto save to

webpage needs list of libraries/and coditions to receive them

document where all log info can be found, fill in any holes.
