Using one of the Metastock Development Kit resources - External Function API, I need
to build a few utility functions (external to Metastock native environment) which would be written in a lower level programming language (C, C++, Pascal or PowerBasic).
Some of the features of the MetaStock External Functions (MSX) API are:
-Create MetaStock Custom Formula functions in a Win 32 DLL
-Use the power of conventional programming languages
-Sample code provided for C, C++, Pascal, and PowerBASIC
-Unlimited number of functions per DLL
-Argument types include Data Array, Numeric, String, and Custom
-Up to 9 arguments per function
Utilities I am interested in at the moment are:
- write output to a comma delimited text file (akin to WrineLine() in C#);
- provide ability for string concatenation function and string formatting.
