If I enter > web3.admin.eth.allAccounts() in my eth client I get the following answer after it lists my accounts:

  nicependingtotal: '21.173 ether',
  nicetotal: '16.168 ether',
  pendingtotal: '0x125d7efa42fd28720',
  total: '0xe060fa8c05ea2720'

I interpret it as if I had 5 that should be 'credited', is that correct? How can I find more info about these?

edit : 3 days later, having done no transactions, the pending disappeared, really weird

Your interpretation seems correct. You can double-check with eth.pendingTransactions to see that there is a pending transaction that is sending ~5 ETH to the account. Pending transactions are those that have not been mined to a block yet.

I assume that "nice" is used because values are usually in hex and wei. So providing the "nice" values is easier for humans to understand.

The Homestead Guide may have information about "nice", but it may take time since there's a lot to document and it is a community and volunteer effort.

  • web3.eth.getBlock("pending", true).transactions changes all the time, I can't see my address in it, web3.eth.pendingTransactions returns undefined, might be a geth method

  • Yes, eth.pendingTransactions is for Geth; only realized you were using cpp-ethereum after I answered and I'm not sure how to get it for cpp-eth. (getBlock might only be returning transaction hashes: if so they need to be looked up).
