Happydigger for GNU/Linux
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
libraries and headers to compile happydigger. Current version is 2.1
You can find the source code
The user interface is available in english, dutch and french.

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.
With this version additional tables can be created for storing information.
Image displaying has been improved, you can view an image in it's original
size by clicking on it and lighten or darken it by using the up and down keys.
Since November 4th, 2005, happydigger has a project page at savannah, which
you can use for bug reports and support. Please follow
