hoostus Fix #12
The previous code was showing the 64 oldest items, instead of the 64
newest items.

readline.get_history_item(0) is the oldest item in the readline
history. So if we want to show there are 200 items in the history
and we want to show the 64 newest we need to start iterating from
item (200-64) and show items 136-200.

A double-entry bookkeeping computer language that lets you define financial
transaction records in a text file, read them in memory, generate a variety of
reports from them, and provides a web interface.


Documentation lives on Google Docs. You can find an index to all the available
documents here:

There's a `mailing-list dedicated to Beancount
<!forum/beancount>`_, please post questions
there, so others can share in the responses. More general discussions about
command-line accounting also occur on the `Ledger mailing-list
<!forum/ledger-cli>`_ so you might be
interested in that group as well.

Download & Installation

You can obtain the source code from the official Mercurial repository on


See the `Installing Beancount`__ document for more details.
