Kyle, thanks for the reply. I'll look into that script, although there'd be some value in patrons (and staff) knowing what their fines are going to be before the books are checked in (say, if they're checking their account info from home). But at this point I'll take anything that works.
Can I infer from your message that none of the 4 scripts I mentioned are working under Koha 3? I tried all four, but got error messages along the lines of this:
> export PERL5LIB=/usr/share/koha/lib
> export KOHA_CONF=/etc/koha/koha-conf.xml
Can't locate object method "preference" via package "C4::context" (perhaps you forgot to load "C4::context"?) at /usr/share/koha/lib/C4/Overdues.pm line 116.
How is everyone else running Koha calculating fines?
