This package contains one executable that is able to read and write
DTAUS files that are commonly used in Germany. DTAUS is an acronym
for DatenTr�gerAUStausch. It is used by credit institutes in order to
transfer commands for money exchanges between bank accounts.
DTAUS files use a special but simple and freely documented format.
I've attached a written down version in dtaus.txt in this
As DTAUS uses very long integer values you can't rely on regular C
long integer variables. Therefore this package includes a small (and
incomplete) library that deals with large integer numbers. At the
moment it only contains routines that are needed by dtaus but you're
invited to improve it and send back appropriate patches to me. The
library is called bigint and is included in this package.
I've been told that one can use StarFinanz to transmit DTAUS files
(via W32, though) to the bank without the need to use T-Online.
I have set up a couple of web pages describing the dtaus package as
well as collecting additional information that may be useful to dtaus
users. Please check out:
There is a mailing list set up on lists.infodrom.org that deals with
DTAUS and appropriate issues. If you have questions or suggestions
please subscribe to the list and post there.
The source code for this package is also available through anonymous
CVS at :pserver:email@example.com:/var/cvs/infodrom using the
module dtaus. Accessing this is described in detail at the web pages
Please don't contact me personally if you don't have confidential
questions or information. Please use the mailing list from above
instead. Using the mailing list has a couple of advantages. Your
question and comments are archived publically and properly so they can
be used later as well. As another bonus somebody else than me could
answer a question, hence not incrementing my workload and it's more
difficult to forget about it.
The submission address for the mailing list is:
