RE: Spelling/Typing Practice

It works well now.

I had to reduce the font size in order to display some of the longer fltk strings, but apart from that I'm liking it. I'd like to try loading simple one-word-per-line lists rather than table-based lists, since I believe it would be much easier from the end user's point of view. There are many places online that already have lists of this sort, in many subjects, and creating your own lists would be very easy.
For example, ls -1 /bin > bin.txt or echo $PATH|tr ':' '\n' > path.txt

Also added a line to "scramble" the list a little. It's not a real scramble, but at least takes them out of alphabetical order so it appears to be somewhat random.
table.sort(spellingLists[i], function(a,b) return a==b end)
I don't understand the sort function, though. I just made something up that resulted in the order being changed from what it was before.
