A Small Summer Project

I've put together a little program that I use to manage my to-do list. It was originally a bash script, which I wrote back in May. The script allows me to add tomorrow's date and a task to the text file that keeps track of the list, as well as print the most recent entries in the list.

I've found myself with some free time and the desire to make something small, so I've ported my little bash script to C. Functionality is mostly duplicated, though the C program adds the ability to add items to the list without opening a text editor. Writing this also gave me the opportunity to mess around with makefiles and PKGBUILDS, both of which I've found to be less daunting than they seem.

I've put the project up on Github and have also created a PKGBUILD for Arch Linux. You can also download the utility here. Both the bash script and the C utility are licensed under the GNU General Public License Version 3.
