mnemosyne(1) spaced repetition flash-card program


mnemosyne [options]


The Mnemosyne software resembles a traditional flash-card program to help you memorise question/answer pairs, but with an important twist: it uses a sophisticated algorithm to schedule the best time for an item to come up for review. Difficult items that you tend to forget quickly will be scheduled more often, while Mnemosyne won't waste your time on things you remember well.

Since Mnemosyne is a GUI application it is usually not started from a shell, but from an X11 menu and doesn't take many options. For a few hints on how to use the software, see the homepage at
