   A successful student on this task will:
 
      * Write various test cases for Ledger-CLI that will clearly show the
 
        floating point issue.
 
      * Rework the codebase to use fixed-point arithmetic so those bugs are
 
        closed.
 
      * Shepherd the patch upstream.
 
      * Close any bug tickets in the bug tracker that relate to this issue.
 
      * Time permitting: verify that other Ledger implementations don't
 
        face the same problem.
 
  
 

	
 
   Note that because this would be a major "bombing run" sort of change,
 
   there may be some resistance to upstreaming this patch, so this task may
 
   be harder than it looks on the surface from a community advocacy angle.  
 
      
 
3. Build a better test suite for [Ledger-CLI](http://www.ledger-cli.org/).
 

	
 
   Since this project relies so heavily on Ledger-CLI, we'd really like there
 
   to be a full test coverage for Ledger-CLI.  To do that, a student will
 
   need to be already somewhat familiar C++ and willing to learn about how to
 
   set up test suites for C++ programs, and likes writing tests.  The student
