Jeopardy Question/Answer Database

The place to talk. "On topic"? "Off topic"? We make no such petty distinctions here.

I do know that the show itself keeps a database of all the questions
and answers that it has ever used on the show, for its own purposes.
(To prevent repeating questions, for instance).

You might want want to ask the producers for a copy :mrgreen:

From the book about Watson, I learned that contestant Roger Craig
wrote a few lines in Perlscript to read the data from JArchive! You
might try asking him for it.

I think the data used in JArchive is not from a database though, but is
typed into the HTML pages. So its not downloadable as a data file. But you
should be able to do the same thing as Roger did, if it comes down to that.
