"Now, sir, this register makes the entries."

Category : Technology/LucaObjC.txt

"This, Mr. Merchant, is a National Cash Register of the most approved pattern.

"To appreciate what a help it would be to you, we must see what things you do in your store of which you keep a record. I think the ordinary daily transactions with your customers may be arranged in five classes, thus:

1. You sell goods for cash.
2. You sell goods for credit.
3. You receive cash on account.
4. You pay out cash.
5. You change a coin or bill.

"Am I right?

"Now, sir, this register makes the entries. The indication of the transaction shows through this glass. The amount of the last recorded transaction is always visible, and the records are made by pressing the keys."

- "The Birth of a Salesman" - Walter A. Friedman

A National Cash Register nowadays is hard to find. You can use Luca instead to make all the entries. Luca 2.0 is out. It's totally rewritten in Objective-C and uses an embedded SQLite database. No more messing around with MySQL and Java. Download and use the trial version today.
