    Default Suggest me an addon?

    Good morning all.

    For my main assignment for Java we are working on a program using WolframAlpha.

    I would love to hear some suggestions as to what i could do for extra functionality.
    The entire assignment is worth 100 marks, and the extra functionality section is worth 10 marks of that.

    The program is to do the following:

    1: Prompt user for question and send to WolframAlpha.
    2: Return to user the answer returned, less all the gibberish. (Cleaned up asnwer)
    3: Store questions asked to a .list file
    4: Store answers for each question to .list file
    5: Alert the user if they asked the same question already and return to them the answer for that question.

    6: extra functionality for 10 marks.

    I'm doing ok with the program as a whole, but would love to hear suggestions on what extra to bolt on!
    (Not looking for code, ideas only)
    Please give me beginner level stuff i can work on.

    Cheers lads,

    CC.

    Not familiar with Wofram Alpha. What does it or your question have to do with Java?

    Wolfram is a computational engine.

    Lecturer gave us a wolfram api and we are building a Java program around it, in the form of points 1-6 i list in my OP.

    1: Prompt user for question and send to WolframAlpha.
    2: Return to user the answer returned, less all the gibberish. (Cleaned up answer)
    3: Store questions asked to a .list file
    4: Store answers for each question to .list file
    5: Alert the user if they asked the same question already and return to them the answer for that question.
    6: extra functionality for 10 marks.

    Essentially i am looking for ideas on what to do for point 6.

    What it has to do with Java is that the program is written in Java and invokes wolfram.
