French currency system

Would someone please take pity on me and explain the early/mid-19th century French currency system for me? At the moment it seems like a giant jumble of sous, deniers, francs, livres, etc, and I have no idea what's equivalent to what or how much any of it is worth. (And if it helps, the relevant dates are 1817-1832.) A general idea of what one could buy with various amounts of money would be massively helpful too, as well as, more specifically, what a reasonable asking price for a lower-class streetwalker was.
