Splitting of group expenses with Python.
How to format your input.txt file
The first line should be the first names of all involved, seperated by a space.
shane maneesh cliff angelo
The following lines are for expenses. This is the format:
[item] [amount] [who paid] [who owes for purchase]
So if Shane paid $25 for an Uber and Angelo, Maneesh, and Cliff all rode, it would look like this:
uber 25 shane shane angelo maneesh cliff
If Cliff paid $260 for dinner that Maneesh and Shane also enjoyed, it would look like this:
dinner 260 cliff cliff maneesh shane
If Cliff paid $100 for something Shane, it would look like this:
thing 100 cliff shane
You can also comment lines using the tilde character
~ This is a comment!
The file should be a .txt file. Look at
input.txt for a complete input file example.
How to run
python3 calculate.py input.txt
If you would like to round the values, pass it the following paramaters:
- Nothing does not round
rto round normally
ruto round up
rdto round down
To round up would look like this:
python3 calculate.py input.txt ru
