Adding Shops To Money Manager

Creating New Shops

The Money Manager program is written in the Initial Programming Language, this is an interpretive language similar in structure to BASIC, but was created as a programming language for beginners not programmers.

If you have never programmed before then you should be able to make some changes but might need to spend a bit of time to bring the spare shops into use.

If you are an experienced programmer you might find the environment a bit annoying.
