Before registering on the CZSK forum, read the FAQ above and then also this thread:
https://www.sierrachart.com/SupportBoard.php?ThreadID=52801


All studies on the CZSK forum are without open source code. DLL only.


If you are interested in any code (or part of code), you are an amateur and not a vendor, so write me my email and we can discuss about it. It's all a matter of agreement and the reasons you have for it. But it is not my duty. I write it in advance.

And be sure to ask Ackin to give you copy of the source code (.cpp) when completed, especially if you are paying for it.

The trading community is full of dishonest people making garbage systems. SC stands out against these systems trying to make a better product and community!

And those who offer free indicators to the community, but won't share the underlying programming as open source code so others can learn and giveback as well.

Well my point was there is people who give their indicators for free but DOES NOT open source the product. I see it a bit mistake.

Exactly.

Running a non-SC compiled .dll of unknown provenance isn't exactly best practices either, unless you trust the developer.

However, if you are someone who likes to "Trust, but Verify" (as a certain American politician once said), you'd probably want to compile the .dll yourself, if only for safety's sake.

The free indicator does not equal open source. I don't know in which country this works. Not in my country. It's every developer's intellectual property, his decision to give or not .... and on this forum are most traders from the civilized world ... so this right is unquestionable. I have offered the source code publicly several times here. No one has ever developed anything in additional to my code (as upgrade), unless they forgot to send it here ... ... people are just downloading ... in addition, some codes have started to be sold and shown on other platforms. That's why I don't put them here anymore. An indicator that is used by thousands of people in the same market is useless. Not only people from the sierrachart come here.

What user X keeps repeating here about the dangers of the library and that malicious code may be hidden in it is true. I agree with that. Malicious code can be used in any compiled file. So yes, everyone should be careful what they download. If someone doesn't trust the developer (either me or anyone else), don't download the library. But this one-man campaign where his last 50 posts are just "give us the source code" is already very embarrassing.

A link to my library is in the Sirrachart store. If something was wrong, the Administrator would intervene and delete the link.

790 people use this library. 389 officially. Another 401 without access restrictions. No one has a problem. But I've been here for a year under constant spam about source code, insults, racism and danger statements. The Middle Ages returned and the witch-hunt in senseless accusations without proof.

Is it okay to change the status of the library to paid? for one cent? or give a paid library with a trial-free period of 50 years? Then the source code is no longer a matter of course. Am I really supposed to do such absurdities to you finally stop spam about source code? It's my intellectual property and you have no right to it ... that's my last word.
