in thread (OT) Perl Open Source accounting packages?

I'd say that without accounting knowledge you're going to be pretty hard pressed to do a whole hell of a lot for an accounting package.

I've had to play accountant a few times here at work and "the books" made less sense to me than some of the Perl obfu's here. : )

Seriously though, it's not something I think I'd trust if the person didn't have some accounting background behind them that was doing the work. Just my opine.

There is no emoticon for what I'm feeling now.

    No kidding. I'm still having trouble figuring out how somebody just notices that they don't really have $7-10 billion that they said they had, or that other people thought they had. I mean, When my bank account goes under by $5, I get charged $30 and that's that. I tried the "no really, I've got $18 million in there!" angle, but no dice. So I'm clueless.. how do you botch so much money?

    Perhaps Corporate America needs a real accounting package. Perhaps they need perl.

      Well...

      Maybe we can write it and donate 35% to the Monestary and split the difference? : )
