Detailed Description

General utilities for dealing with accounting periods.

These are general utility functions for specifying an accounting period and converting it to a value usable by the gnucash engine. The choice of src/app-utils is arbitrary as these utilities don't fit well anywhere else. They are at a higher level than a GDate, so they don't fit in src/core-utils/gnc-gdate-utils.c. They don't operate on engine data structures, so they don't belong in src/engine/Period.c. Putting them into src/engine/gnc-date.c would be the best place for them, but then that creates a new dependency from the src/engine directory to the src/core-utils directory that doesn't currently exist. Since that might be a problem for CashUtils, the app-file directory was chosen.
