I've just uploaded a new version of the Bundle.  See


Major additions:

(1) Full support for PDF forms. All environments that used forms have been rewritten to 
include the  new eForm support.

(2) I've release a new package called eq2db, the distribution includes 
eq2db.dtx (and .ins), a latex package that converts an Exerquiz quiz
into one that can be submitted to server-side script.  The package has two options
eqRecord and custom.  When the eqRecord option is taken, the quizzes are
set up to submit to a server-side script called eqRecord.asp (also included).
Two sample files quiz1.tex and quiz2.tex are provided as well as a sample
Access 2000 database. The custom option can be used by developers to prepare an
exerquiz quiz for submission to another script, using the eq2db macros.

Because eqRecord.asp is an active server page, this script must be set up on a Windows 
server (sorry about that).  I encourage others to develop general CGI that can run on other 
systems.  New options could be added to set up quizzes for these scripts. I'm afraid that I 
don't have time nor do I have a development environment for scripts on UNIX, for example.
