A Payroll system for companies based in the United Kingdom.

This free unix/linux payroll programme was written as a practical exercise in 'leveraging' the advantages offered by such gnu programmes as the bash shell and the utility tools of gawk,egrep,sed,tr,etc. An added incentive was to offer a free payroll programme to the linux community in the UK in the hope that this would - in its own minor way - aid small businesses to use gnu/linux as their preferred operating platform . The programme has been written in a modular way so that the many functions required such as calculation of freepay,tax payable,NIC payable etc can be tested seperately.
