1INTRODUCTION
2tdl is a lightweight program for managing a 'to-do' list of pending jobs that
3you have.
4
5It supports the following features :
6- 1 database per directory, or per tree of directories (tdl searches up through
7 parent directories to find the database, so you can have one per project, for
8 example.)
9- add new entries, mark them done, edit the text of entries
10- add a new entry and immediately mark it done (e.g. to log tasks you did which
11 you tackled immediately you got them.)
12- organise the entries in a tree structure (sub-tasks of other tasks etc)
13- move the tasks around and re-organise the hierarchy.
14- list the tasks in the database (default listing excludes 'done' tasks, but
15 these can be shown too if desired). The listing is in colour by default, with
16 monochrome output as an option.
17- allows entries to be prioritised (priorities shown in different colours on
18 listing). The listing can selectively show only entries at or above a given
19 priority level.
20- the start time for tasks can be set, to allow for 'deferred' tasks with start
21 times in the future. Such tasks are excluded from the default listing.
22- track date added and date completed for each task
23- generate report of tasks completed in a given earlier time period (useful if
24 you have to produce a weekly summary of your work done, for example)
25- import and export entries, to allow splitting and merging of databases.
26- written in C
27- runs on a Linux console or in a terminal window. It currently generates a
28 coloured listing, so a colour xterm or rxvt is preferred.

30The functionality and interface are heavily inspired by the program devtodo.
