Where do I have to store my EA's if I want to debug it.

 

Hi,

I'm working on linux, and I rarely use IDE's, especially their text editors.

So I have a directory with my EA in it, say, at the path home/lrdprdx/projects/experts/dummy.

I can open it in the MQL5Editor and compile. But I cannot debug it (the buttons are inactive).

So I have to copy my .mq5 file into the MQL5/Shared Projects directory.

The question is : Is it required an EA is placed in the MQL5 directory to be able to debug it?


Thank you in advance.

A big program starts with a small file, which then grows in size as you keep adding more functions and objects. Most robot developers utilize include files to handle this problem. However, there is a better solution: start developing any trading application in a project. There are so many reasons to do so.
