I've eliminate all of the compile errors in my EA mq4 source code except this one: '\End-of-program - unexpected square bracket'. I don't see any square brackets at the end of the program or anywhere else in the file. Can anyone suggest what to look for to remove this error. Thanks for any comments.

Either post the code here using the SRC button or

see these editors here

You will need one for C language

Good Luck

Thanks for the offer to look at the source. However, I discovered yesterday the problem was due to a missing square bracket in an include file.

Please use the SRC button when posting code.

I have done it for you this time and also removed some of the huge gaps.

Do not double post - I have deleted your other post.

  
         }
      }          //This "}" was missing
}
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+

Adding in the missing } will reveal other problems ie


int TotalOrderCount(String Symbol,int MagicNumber){

String should be string will a small "s".

double UseSlippUpdate=SlippageUpdate(Symbol(),CalcSlipp);

CalcSlipp has not been declared

There are many more errors, so you will need to check them all
