Treatment of debits and credits in accounting software

I am currently working with a financial application which reports debits as minus and credits as plus. I am prepared to accept that provided it does this consistently then there is no issue, but I don't recall any other apps that display debits and credits using this convention. Does anyone have any other examples of financial applications that use strange conventions for displaying debits and credits?
