N.A.N.Y. 2008 / UM - a to do list program
« on: December 31, 2007, 03:33 AM »
DISCLAIMER: This is a program I am writing to help me learn scheme, so it is probably buggy and quite frankly it is a little below the quality that I would prefer when releasing but since it is usable and N.A.N.Y. is a better time than most to release a program...


Listing all unfinished tasks and finishing task 7 (which is of course called task8 because task 1 was finished way back)

UM is a to do list program that is used via the command line.  You can either call it via um.exe <command> or just running it to enter interactive mode.

l  -> List all unfinished tasks (only tasks to depth 2 are currently listed i.e. you can't have sub-sub-tasks)
a task deadline [parent] -> Add a new task, parent is optional
f taskid -> Set task as done
m taskid parentid -> Change tasks parent (0 = root)
u taskid task deadline [parent] -> updates task
help -> displays help

Currently these are the only accepted date formats

Monday ... Sunday
Mon ... Sun        -> Next Monday etc

Tod | Today -> Today's date
Tom | Tomorrow -> Tomorrow's date

Example Usage: (this is in the interactive mode)
um>a Tiger Jul-23
1 Tiger 2007-7-23
um>a Find where tigers are sold May-10 1
um>a Get enough tiger food for 6 months Jul-1 1
um>a Buy tiger Jul-23 1
1 Tiger 2007-7-23

See tdl - to-do list manager ( for the linux program that inspired this.
