DTAUS is a format for German bank transfers and is short for “Datenträgeraustausch”. The format itself totally sucks because it was established in the last century, to be used on floppy disks. Still almost all German banks use it(they only seem innovative at robbing), and it is therefore supported in common banking programs too.
This gem saves you all the trouble when generating dtaus-text.
gem install king_dtaus
#create a new dtaus object dta = KingDta::Dtaus.new('LK') # set sender account dta.account = KingDta::Account.new( "bank_account_number", "bank_number", "bank_owner") # the following should be done in a loop to add multiple bookings # create receiving account rec_acnt = KingDta::Account.new( "bank_account_number", "bank_number", "bank_owner" ) # create booking booking = KingDta::Booking.new(rec_acnt, 100.00 ) # set booking text if you want to booking.text = "Thanks for your purchase" # add booking dta.add( booking ) # end loop # create datausstring and do with it whatever fits your workflow my_str = dta.create
also make sure to read the specs
This gem used rubygems.org/gems/DTAUS as a starting point. It was disected, turned into a real class structure, bugs where fixed and of course a full test suite ensures its functionality.
