CBB Version 0.78 – a personal finance management application

As posted to C.O.L.A.

March 16, 1999

I am pleased to announce the release "CBB" version 0.78, a personal
finance management application written specifically for Unix.  It is
implemented in two parts.  The data base "engine" is written in Perl
and the graphical front end is written in Tcl/Tk.

CBB is available at ftp://ftp.me.umn.edu/pub/finance/cbb-latest.tar.gz

The primary changes from the last major release are:

    o miss-checks.pl report fixed

    o Switch to watch cursor icon when doing a lengthy operation.

    o Include check number in the key (sorting order)

    o Double clicking on cat. list should paste into current splits

    o Added a contrib/change.pl script to convert an entire account
      to a new currency.

    o Yet another minor Y2K tweak.

Thanks to everyone who contributed patches this time around.

Additional details are available at the CBB web page:
