       dfinvoice-future - parse a QSF XML file show future bookings


        dfinvoice-future [-m|--month INTEGER]


       Using a configuration file in the user home directory,
       /home/user/.datafreedom/invoice.conf, the script reads the Palm data
       synchronised using "pilot-qof --invoice-city", combines the data with
       location and rate details in the configuration file and outputs a table
       summarising the invoices and costs.

       Example configuration:


        [Acacia Avenue]

       This configuration sets a mileage rate (expenses charged for personal
       transport for business purposes, per unit distance) and a default
       hourly rate for the work itself. Other expenses are read in from the
       "pilot-qof" data in the basefile. If "category" is set, the string is
       passed to the "--category" option of "pilot-qof" to isolate specific
       categories of appointments, expenses and contacts from the rest of your
       data. (Only one category is supported.)

       For places where the rates differ, location-specific sections can be
       added - the hourly rate overrides the default rate and the code is
       meant to be a shorthand for the location itself. e.g. if Head Office
       etc. puts a code in the invoice payment notice to represent the
       location or the cost code and similar, to help you identify the
       appropriate line of content in the notice itself.


       The simple table formatting used in the output appears to have a minor
       issue with UTF-8 - if the currency symbol for your locale uses UTF-8,
       the rows using the symbol will be shortened by one character per use of
       the UTF-8 symbol, causing the column markers to be mis-aligned.


       These scripts developed from the 'pilot-qof' package but now include
       support for other packages and formats and will continue to be extended
       along the lines of - liberating user data
       from the application. Therefore, the datafreedom scripts use a 'df'

       The scripts continue to be developed within the pilot-qof CVS until
       such time as the scripts are sufficiently cohesive to form a new source

       Please feel free to contribute any of your own scripts, under the
       provisions of the GNU General Public Licence v3 or later, via the QOF-
       devel mailing list.


       Version 0.0.1


       pilot_expenses is part of pilot-qof.  Can also be used with gpe-
       expenses - compatibility with the default SQLite gpe-expenses backend
       is pending.
