Summary description: Create an arithmetic flash card

Announcement text:
fc_arith is a LaTeX package used to create an arithmetic flash card.
Addition, subtraction, ultiplication, and division problems are
randomly generated. There is a menu system for setting the intervals
from which to randomly draw numbers, and the number of decimal places
these numbers hould have. The user can optionally compete against the
clock, and awarded points as a function of how fast the problem is
correctly solved.

What's New (2016/12/10): All the standard PDF creators can build the
demo file fc_noacrobat.tex. If you own the Acrobat application, you can
also build fc_acrobat.tex using any workflow (dvips/distiller,
pdflatex, lualatex, and xelatex). Additional commands are defined to
localize virtually strings the package uses. A redefined menu
environment (MenuFC) is more flexible than the old one. Fixed a lot of
bugs found by my greatest user and tester J. Gilg.
