Welcome to Ledger, a command-line accounting program. Quick start =========== To build Ledger, you will first need these two libraries installed: gmp GNU multi-precision library pcre Perl regular expression library If you wish to read Gnucash data files, you will also need two XML libraries, which may or may not be available in a single package (it depends on your distribution): xmlparse xmltok Once you have determined where the headers and libraries for the above packages are installed, run the script "configure", passing those paths. If you installed everything under /usr/local, you can probably just type "./configure". Otherwise, do this: ./configure CPPFLAGS=-I<INCLUDE-PATH> LDFLAGS=-L<LIBRARY-PATH> If you need to specify multiple include or library paths, then do this: ./configure CPPFLAGS="-I<PATH1> -I<PATH2>" LDFLAGS="-L<PATH1> -L<PATH2>" Once configure is done running, just type: make install Mailing List and IRC ==================== If you need help on how to use Ledger, or run into problems, you can join the Ledger mailing list at the following Web address: https://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/listinfo/ledger-discuss You can also find help at the #ledger channel on the IRC server irc.freenode.net. Building Ledger as a Python Module ================================== If you have Python 2.2 or higher installed, and Boost.Python, then Ledger can also be built as a Python module, if --enable-python is passed to the configure script. This means you can interact with your Ledger data from Python, making it easy to write custom reports. This feature is mostly undocumented in version 2.0, although main.py is a working example.
