The answer to what I think is your second question is yes. The
set definition files themselves must be in
/usr/local/webwork/templates, however the .pg files
can be in other places. For example, put a link(alias) called library
in /user/local/webwork/templates (the link can point anywhere,
e.g. /usr/local/webwork/rochester_problib) Then the problems listed
in a setdefinition file: setTestRochesterProblems
would have problem entries such as
library/setAlgebra1RealNumbers/srw1_1_21-28.pg , 1
You can build this set and printout a hardcopy to see the problems.
You can also use the same addressing scheme in any set definition file.
If you don't want to use a link, you can actually create a subdirectory
of /usr/local/webwork/templates (call it
/usr/local/webwork/templates/rochester_problib) and place the problems
The address of the problem in the set definition file is relative
to /usr/local/webwork/templates, but that is the only requirement.
I suspect that even something like
would work, although I recommend using the link approach instead -- it's less likely to cause mistakes.
As to getting printouts to problems from the rochester problem
database, you might like to look at another view of the problem library
If you go to something like
you can select any problems in the set that you wish, and create a PDF
printout of just those problems. Unfortunately, at the moment you can
only obtain a printout of problems that come from a single set. You can't mix problems from different sets.
If it would be useful to have a more flexible method of printing PDF
files for selecting problems, I'm sure that I can arrange it. What I
would like is a description of the user interface that would be
desired. Once that
is in place, the rest should be pretty easy to implement.
