Problem


The file that comes with the examples for Money.h++ 2.0.0 does not have the final euro conversion rates. exchange rates. Conversions between euro and the currencies of the Member States adopting the euro were fixed as of January 1, 1999.


Cause


Money.h++ 2.0.0 was released before the finalization of euro exchange rates.


Action


Download the file exchange_rates.txt and replace the file distributed with Money.h++. It is located in /parts/mny0200u/examples/src.

The version you are downloading contains the european exchange rates based on the web page http://europa.eu.int/eurobirth/rates.html on Jan. 4, 1999.

All other exchange rates were left alone.

World currency exchange rates fluctuate daily, so we make no attempt to keep up. We will leave the distribution of world exchange rates up to the powers that be. Conversions between the euro and non-member currency will fluctuate with the rest of the world. We recommend that your application be able to update the exchange rates dynamically.

The file exchange_rates.txt can be used to initialize your rate table using the function RWExchangeRateTable::initialize(). The syntax is explained in the Money.h++ 2.0 User's Guide in Section 5.2. This is located in your online documentation in /htmldocs. This documentation is in HTML format, and can be viewed in your web browser.
