       Timeclock - the time logging format of timeclock.el, as read by hledger


       hledger  can read timeclock files.  As with Ledger, these are (a subset of) timeclock.el's
       format, containing clock-in and clock-out entries as in the example below.  The date is  a
       simple  date.   The time format is HH:MM[:SS][+-ZZZZ].  Seconds and timezone are optional.
       The timezone, if present, must be four digits and is ignored (currently the time is always
       interpreted as a local time).

              i 2015/03/30 09:00:00 some:account name  optional description after two spaces
              o 2015/03/30 09:20:00
              i 2015/03/31 22:21:45 another account
              o 2015/04/01 02:00:34

       hledger  treats each clock-in/clock-out pair as a transaction posting some number of hours
       to an account.  Or if the session spans more than  one  day,  it  is  split  into  several
       transactions,  one  for  each  day.  For the above time log, hledger print generates these
       journal entries:

              $ hledger -f t.timeclock print
              2015-03-30 * optional description after two spaces
                  (some:account name)         0.33h

              2015-03-31 * 22:21-23:59
                  (another account)         1.64h

              2015-04-01 * 00:00-02:00
                  (another account)         2.01h

       Here is a sample.timeclock to download and some queries to try:

              $ hledger -f sample.timeclock balance                               # current time balances
              $ hledger -f sample.timeclock register -p 2009/3                    # sessions in march 2009
              $ hledger -f sample.timeclock register -p weekly --depth 1 --empty  # time summary by week

       To generate time logs, ie to clock in and clock out, you could:

       • use emacs and the built-in timeclock.el, or the extended timeclock-x.el and perhaps  the
         extras in ledgerutils.el

       • at the command line, use these bash aliases: shell     alias ti="echo i `date '+%Y-%m-%d
         %H:%M:%S'` \$* >>$TIMELOG"     alias to="echo o `date '+%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S'` >>$TIMELOG"

       • or use the old ti and to scripts  in  the  ledger  2.x  repository.   These  rely  on  a
         "timeclock" executable which I think is just the ledger 2 executable renamed.
