+Ledger is an accounting program which is invoked from the command-line
+using a textual ledger file. To start using Ledger, you will need to
+create such a file containing your financial transactions. A sample
+has been provided in the file "sample.dat". See the documentation
+(ledger.pdf, or for full documentation on creating a
+ledger file and using Ledger to generate reports.
