    I have some mq4 files that I downloaded on the net. I think they run in Metastock or Metatrader, not sure which. The language looks very close to C++. Does anyone know of a cross-compiler to interpreter for these .mq4 files? They create a bunch of indicators and all I want to do is dump the indicators to a text file. No need for plotting or any of the other fancy metastock / metatrader stuff.
  2. Don't follow you (not a metastock guy, though). You've got some source files that look like C++. You want to write them to a text file ?

    But they are already a text file (C++ source is ascii text).

    What exactly do you want to do ? Compile the C++ (like) source ?
    Run it in an interpreter ?
