Projects / smtm


smtm (Show Me The Money) is a Perl/Tk ticker, profit/loss calculator, and chart tool. It can display up to ten fields per share, among them company name, price, absolute and relative price changes as well as net wealth change (if the number of shares held is supplied). Other assets such as options, mutual funds, currencies are also supported. Foreign stocks are treated via cross-currency pairs that translate into domestic units. Charts can be launched with one click, and all the charts available at Yahoo!, including all of the advanced moving average and technical analysis features, can be displayed. Stocks can be added and deleted, and the selection can be stored. smtm has been used with US, Canadian, European, Asian, Australian/New Zealand, and South American stocks. Firewalls are fully supported, including user/password support.

    Release Notes: This release really updates the Depends and not Build-Depends to remove the no-longer-needed libtk-png-perl.

    •  22 Jan 2006 19:51

      Release Notes: The Debian dependency on libtk-png-perl has been removed, as Tk::PNG is now part of the main perl-tk Debian packages. There are no actual code changes.
