   Programmer: Glenn Bacon
   Note: Every programmer has their own style and format of writing code. I try
   to make the code as readable as possible by using indenting and tab nested code.
   There are comments throughout the source explaining what each block/line of code does.
   
   I always use brackets {} to contain my if else and for conditional statements. Some
   programmers use shortcuts I do not. I think more programmers should always use 
   brackets because it makes the code more readable. (bored reading this yet?)
   
   I also only create and use a couple of my own functions because if you create dozens of functions it
   makes the code more difficult to read.
 
   If you're not a programmer and have questions about the code do not email me about
   the code or what it does. If you are a programmer and have questions about this
   code I can be contacted by going to http://www.GetForexSoftware.com and navigate to our
   Customer Service page, it has a contact form.
