1.Yes you can use C
2. Are you asking us to give you requirements for making accounting software or are you asking for programming skill requirements?
3.You could use Oracle
4.I don't think there is a specific book out there for just making accounting software with C, there are books that will teach you the language and then you can apply what you learned to make the software.

1.Yes you can use C
I think the OP was asking about C# not C.

hi ...

to give more specific advices you should add much more information about the requirements. may be it should be a webbased application? may be it should be platform independent? etc. etc. ... you could use any database or programming language to write a accounting software but some are more suitable then others depending to specific requirements ...

kind regards

Hi All, Our company is currently evaluating Python as a language for writing financial/accounting type software (among others). What libraries or packages are available in this domain for use? I've had a look at Quantlib, but it doesn't seem like exactly the type of library we're interested in. The programmers are looking for something that can be used as a General Ledger, or be used to implement a General Ledger.

I am looking for an open source accounting application written in C#. I have looked at maybe doing something with Accounting Express, but I wanted to know some opinions.

The clients are mainly government employees so the package needs to except all the weird...
