[b-greek] Undergraduate Honors Project -- Parsing Quiz Software

Hello everyone! I just joined B-Greek today and it looks awesome!
I'm currently a junior at Oklahoma Baptist University and I am trying to
finalize plans for a project to fulfill the requirements for the Honors
Program. I'm a Computer Science/Youth Ministry major who has just
completed my first year of Greek, and one of my biggest difficulties was
not with vocabulary (I had Mounce's Teknia Language Tools to help me), but
with recognizing forms of words other than the lexical form. It has
occurred to me that a piece of software designed to quiz students over
various forms of a word would be beneficial. I realize Mounce's ParseWorks
does this, but it is keyed to his intro grammar and is wrong sometimes.
What I am envisioning would be flexible, hopefully portable (start out on
Windows, move to Linux and the WWW), and actually have the computer
inflect/decline the word based on the principal parts. This has
preliminary approval from the Honors Program Director, my advisor and my
Greek teacher. But my question is this:

Is there any other software out there that accomplishes this task already?

I don't want to write a program that already exists... so if anyone knows
of such software, I'd appreciate it if you could send me the URLs.
I look forward to being a part of this mailing list!
