I'm working on a simple program to match credit card payments from the bank to
my expense accounts. Gnucash' bayesian filter never seems to work for me ;-)
And, I'd like to clean up some of the text garbage in the record the bank
I'm working on a simple matching routine with a hash. I think I've screwed up the hash somehow. The second line will match, but
never the first one. So (determine-acct "Bank Charge 123") yields NIL, but (determine-acct "City Market
123") yields the intended "Expenses:Groceries". If I reverse the lines in the hash and put the "Bank
Charge" line last, the match on that works and the match on "City Market" fails. Why?
Any insight appreciated.
# Set account based on description: "City Market" -> "Expenses:Groceries"
("Bank Charge"."Expenses:Bank Fee") # matches if in last
("City Market"."Expenses:Groceries") # ONLY this line works to
(de determine-acct (desc)
(for x account-list # go through account list
(when (sub? (car x) desc)
(cdr x)))) # on match
return expense category
