python amortization.py -csv|screen -P # -i # -n # example with principle of $270,000, 4.44% interest, for 30 years: python amortization.py -csv -P 270000 -i .0444 -n 360 -csv: create a Comma Separated Values file to import into excel -screen: print the amortization table to screen -P: for # enter principal amount -i: for # enter interest as a decimal -n: for # enter number of months If you want to see the effect of extra monthly payments, create a file called extraprincipal and put the values in one after another one line at a time. Ex: 0 200 300 0 would be 0 extra principal the first month, 200 extra the second month, etc

You can import this into any program that can take in CSV files. If you import it into a spreadsheet program you can then create a PDF (or anything else you'd do with a spreadsheet.
