       anki - flexible,	intelligent flashcard program

       Anki  is	 a  program designed to	help you remember facts	(such as words
       and phrases in a	foreign	language) as easily, quickly  and  efficiently
       as  possible.   To  do this, it tracks how well you remember each fact,
       and uses	that information to optimally schedule review  times.  With  a
       minimal	amount of effort, you can greatly increase the amount of mate-
       rial you	remember, making study more productive,	and more fun.

       Anki is based on	a theory called	spaced repetition. In simple terms, it
       means  that  each time you review some material,	you should wait	longer
       than last time before reviewing it again. This maximizes	the time spent
       studying	 difficult  material  and  minimizes  the time spent reviewing
       things you already know.	The concept is simple, but the	vast  majority
       of  memory  trainers  and flashcard programs out	there either avoid the
       concept all together, or	implement inflexible  and  suboptimal  methods
       that were originally designed for pen and paper.

       -b ~/.anki Use ~/.anki instead of ~/Anki	as Anki's base folder

       -p ProfileName Load a specific profile

       -l  <lang> Start	the program in a specific language (de=German, en=Eng-
       lish, etc)
