I'm curious what guided the man who designed this API in such a weird, ridiculous and just a bad way.
Why do you deliver it as some strange .exe file?
Don't you realize that Windows is not even the default system for a Software Developer?
When the API for Linux will be released?

Marcin,

IQFeed has always been developed as a Windows program. The app IQConnect.exe is what makes the connection to the API servers. The only thing you have to do is launch it with some parameters to make the connection with the IQFeed servers.

IQFeed does have a number of Linux users, and there is a long-term plan to implement IQFeed for it, though there is currently no ETA. So, in the meantime, you’ll have to use Wine or a comparable solution to run IQConnect.exe in Linux. I can help with this.

Sincerely,
Gary Stephen

Hahaha. So true

Preach!

Are there documentation anywhere for me to write my own client? If you provide me the details, I will write a cross platform client, and share it for free/open-source to everyone.

Hyperbaboon,

what do you mean by cross platform client?

Thanks,
Mathieu
