Usage

1
dispatch(balance, order = c("Who", "Whom"), round = 2)

Idealy, the vector should be named (see example below)

order

A character string specifying the sorting method to use for the output. Must be either "Who" (the default) or "Whom" (see examples).

round

Integer. With how many digits should amounts owed be displayed. Defaults to 2
