Creating flash cards using Latex

Installation (in Ubuntu):
1. Install Kile
2. apt-get latex texlive and texlive-latex-extra packages
3. Modify the /usr/share/texmf-texlive/tex/latex/flashcards/flashcards.cls to new flashcards.cls
4. Print them in pdf format for reading

My future Pet project:
1. Create a java viewer (since I use both linux and windows) for latex or use some open source java library that renders latex (I didnot find a good C# library that does it either).
2. Use the flashcard package.
3. Use supermemo algorithm or Leitner system to enhance learning experience.
