GNU Pem GNU Pem is a handy tool to help you keep track of your personal income and expenses. On GNU/Linux and other Unix like systems, Pem works by storing the details in a CSV file placed in the ~/.pem directory under your $HOME directory. On Windows, the same file is placed in pem directory, under the %USERPROFILE% directory. Each such file is named after the current month, and is automatically created by Pem when you enter the first record for a month. It is not advisable to edit these files by hand.
