Thank you for your suggestions and feedback.
past experience in web development of my university web sites and other
projects. I have also experience in C and C++ coding over the past 4 years.
I will think about the design considerations involved in using C/C++ with
gtk/gtkmm. I will implement the feature based on which language and
technology provides better functionality and how well it can be integrated
into the current code base of GnuCash.
I'll let you know of my progress and if I have questions or ideas regarding
which implementation I'll narrow down to, can I contact you through irc or
can we discuss my progress through the development list itself?
Thanks and regards
II yr Comp. Sc. Engg.
