checkbook manager

P: n/a
I'd like to try personal financial management using Python.
I just found PyCheckbook, but it does not support check printing.
Is there a Python check printing application kicking around?

Thanks,
Alan Isaac

OK, I'll assume silence means "no", so new question.
What is the current be practice for cross platform printing of PostScript
files from Python?
Same question for PDF. (I'm aware of
URL:http://tgolden.sc.sabren.com/python/...o_i/print.html.)

You really should wait more than a day for answers. Lots of people
(me, for instance) read the newsgroup once aq day.

I don't think there's a cross-platform solution for these things,
because different platforms handle printing in different manners. Your
URL talks about shellExecute for Windows. On Unix, I expect to be able
to hand ps to lpr and have the right thing happen. pdf may need a
pdf2ps (part of ghostscript) run on it first, or it may not, depending
on the system setup.
