Well, the C/C++ code I wrote two employers ago, and which is hence still
owned by that firm and hence no shareable, worked pretty well.

It shouldn't take too long to rewrite this, starting from the Bloomberg C API

somebody else can though.


Hell, there are no rules here - we're trying to accomplish something.
