PROJECT SUMMARY: Project entails writing a desktop program to decompile\unencrypt Expert Advisor (.ex4) files used with MetaTrader 4 forex trading platform back to human-readable, functioning (MetaQuotes Language 4 (MQL4) files that can be edited\corrected and recompiled using MetaEditor 4. MQL4 is very similar to C/C++. (See [url removed, login to view] and [url removed, login to view] for additional information). Access to the program (MetaEditor 4) used originally to compile MQL4 files to ex4 files will be provided. Project is to write a reverse compilation program to reverse the compilation done by MetaEditor 4 to convert ex4 files back to their original MQL4 editable state.
Compiled ex4 files that contain bugs will be provided to be decompiled for testing purposes. Following successful completion of the decompilation program and completed testing, if selected programmer has the needed experience with MQL4 and is able to make needed corrections to files for proper function and testing, Buyer will have a separate project to make the needed corrections to the program files).
Check out [url removed, login to view] for information on MQL4 language and platforms.
