Well, that'd be a start.

Gah!  Seems like it'd be smarter to write the stuff using the SQL-Ledger
API (though not having looked at the API it could be infinitely more

Since IC table schema seems to be totally up to the implementer (with a
few expected table names and column names), sharing data directly seems
straightforward.  And IC could have a means for using the API to enter
orders and print pick slips and all that fancy stuff.

I'm probably way ahead of myself.

I appreciate the information that you did give.

So am I to take it that nobody here is doing an integrated IC/SQL-Ledger


Is this just because SQL-Ledger is such a pain to modify?
