CBB is a personal check book balancing utility for Unix/X See more details at CBB's homepage: CBB Project. The last version that works (for me) at their home page is cbb-0.8.1.tar.gz. The last version cbb-0.9.5b.tgz available did not work at all.

I am a fan of CBB and I have been using CBB since 1997.

As you can check the project stoped in Jun 2004.

BUT, there is a bug in the 0.8.1 version: When I try (using TAB) to complete an entry I received the message: invalid command name "tkEntrySetCursor". After some tries I found out that this command was in the file /usr/local/lib/cbb/bindings.tcl. The solution was to add at the beggining of the file bindings.tcl a definition for tkEntrySetCursor.

I made this patch and left here for everybody cbb V0.8.2.tgz.

To install you have to untar it in /usr/local and make the linksi right links at /usr/local/bin.

If this was useful for you please send me an e-mail. If you know a better solution, please also contact me.
