Expense control with Perl

[ #1751 ]

I'm going to write an application that will use a file from my Internet homebank to write some information in a database and also draw some graphics based on that information.

I've been thinking about it and downloading such a file is not that hard, plus it's HTML and I can use HTML::Parser (or another module) to extract the information I need to put it into the database.

After having those data at the database, I can use GD::Graph (or Apache::GDGraph, that was what I was thinking about) to plot some information in a mod_perl application.

I'll need, then, 2 scripts: one to parse the HTML and insert it into my private database and another to make the webpage.

I'll be putting some specs at my Moin detailing the application.

A small draft is:

  • each item has a specific code
  • each item has a specific description
  • each item has the date when the operation happened
  • each item has the value (and if it was a credit or debt operation)

I'll use these to obtain the information and groups that I want to store and plot. I'll also use it to make some calculations without "disguised" values from the bank.
