It would be great if it were possible to script execution of metatester, through the CLI.

So, one could call the exe, pass it a .set file, and have it back-test a .mqh file and output the results to a log file..

c:\>metatester64.exe /run MyExpert.mq5 /set MyExpertSettings.set /logfile MyExpert.log /currency USDCHF /time 1-1-2001-1-1-2012 /period M15

Does anyone know if this is possible? Or must one use app/winforms instructions to achieve this?
