PAY ATTENTION, PROGRAMMERS – NEW EQUILLA TOOLS.
Finally, we would like to show all the programmers some innovations in the field of the programming language Equilla. The following commands expand the existing range of different tools and thus offer even more possibilities for creating your own indicators and trading strategies.
ResultString = Replace(String, FindText, ReplaceText, IngnoreCase)
This function is used to search the input string for all instances of the FindText and replace them with the ReplaceText. Setting IgnoreCase to true will make the search and replace case-insensitive.
Split (ResultArray, String, Delimiters)
This function is used to split the input string into sub-strings separated by any of the characters in the Delimiters string (empty strings will be skipped). The results will be copied into the ResultArray. The array must either be dynamic or large enough to hold the resulting sub-strings.
Result = IsBarOne()
This function is returns true if CurrentBar = 1. This is just a shortcut. Please remember that CurrentBar = 1 is different from CurrentBar = FirstBar.
ResultSpan = DateDiff(Interval, Date1, Date2)
This function returns the difference in Interval units between two dates (a negative value is possible). Interval can be one of Interval_Day, Interval_Hour, Interval_Minute or Interval_Second.
