I was wondering if anyone have sample code to read/update Metastock/Computrack files.
I assume you mean the binary Metastock format. The Metastock ASCII format shouldn't give you a problem.
To read Metastock files, you'll find some Java code in the forum of the TurtleTraderSoftware site: http://www.turtletradingsoftware.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=742
For reading, writing and much more, I could recommend the MetaLib from www.trading-tools.com With 49$ (if I remember right) it's price is quite attractive and it's real EASY to use in C#, VB, Excel .... Equis sells a SDK as well, but it's not too cheap (read a couple of hundreds, if I rememeber well) and much more difficult to use.
Other than that, if you search hard enough, you'll find some format descriptions that were hacked together by bit fiddlers on the net.
Also, you can try Hquote for $59 one time fee.
Separate names with a comma.
