ptsb(1) Interact with you Permanent TSB homebanking from your shell!


ptsb [options]

Print accounts balance:

"ptsb [ -F /path/of/conf/file ] -b"

Print account statement:

"ptsb [ -F /path/of/conf/file ] -s -a c -n <4digits" -f yyyy/mm/dd -t yyyy/mm/dd>

If your are running Linux you can use the date --date command to simplify the date range definition. You can put these aliases on your ~/.bashrc:

    alias ptsb_stat='ptsb --statement -a c -n xyzt'
    alias ptst_last_month="statement_current -f `date +%Y/%m/%d --date='1 month ago'` -t `date +%Y/%m/%d`"

Configuration file default location is ~/.ptsbrc and it looks like this:

    -------8< -- ~/.ptsbrc -->8----------
    -------8< --------------->8----------

However you can put wherever you want. Just remember to use then the option -F /path/to/your/location.

Lines beginning with # will be interpreted as comment.

Starting from release 0.08 ptsb will use GnuPG to encrypt the configuration file using the private key of the user. Therefore you'll have to create your key if you didn't do this yet.

In case you want to decrypt your ptsbrc file use this command:

    $ gpg -d /path/to/your/ptsbrc

This will print the encrypted file on the standard output.
