Open Tax Solver GUI is an optional Graphical User Interface for all Open Tax Solver programs and tax-form versions
Open Tax Solver GUI is an optional Graphical User Interface for all Open Tax Solver programs and tax-form versions. It provides a simple way to enter and edit your tax-data and to run the tax-solver on it. The OTS GUI is written to work with any OTS tax data file, both past, present, and future. It is a modular addition to the OTS program set.
The OTS GUI contains no specific tax-form data itself, but rather it reads your selected tax-form file and configures itself accordingly. By virtue of OTS-GUI, all OTS versions now automatically have a GUI front-end, and anyone, even without GUI-writing experience, may create new tax programs having this graphical front-end.
The OTS_GUI is written in C using the Otk (Open Tool Kit) graphics library. It appears to compile easily and run properly on all platforms, including Linux, Microsoft Windows, Mac OsX, Solaris, Irix, and other Unix's in general. Otk was chosen for its cross-platform support, simplicity, and smallness. The OTS GUI is a single C file having less than a thousand lines, and the Otk library consists of a few small files.
