Happydigger for Linux and Windows
Happydigger is a program which you can be used for cataloging archaeological
finds. It is intended both for semi-professional use and by amateurs (e.g.
metal detectorists) who want to keep track of their finds.
Data is stored into a database with extensive find and findspot details.
If images are available, they will be displayed together with the find
information. You need the gtk+-2.0 version 2.12
development libraries and headers to compile happydigger.
Current version is 3.0
. You can find the source code, fedora core
6 rpm and windows binary
The user interface is available in english and dutch.

Version 2.0 contains some important changes. Happydigger has been migrated to
version 3 of the sqlite libraries. To convert your SQLite version 2 database
into a SQLite version 3 database, have ready the command-line shells for both
version 2 and 3. Then type the following:
sqlite db .dump | sqlite3 db.happydigger
Now you can use the new version of happydigger.
Version 3.0 adds printing support. It is also possible to export your database
to html pages which you can upload to a webserver. A windows binary has also been added.

features or other changes.
