Reference another cBot

Hi,

I'm just wondering if it's possible to use another Robot (.algo) as a reference and use its methods.

Many thanks. :)

Hi!
Following variant did not work for me: /forum/cbot-support/219
Now I'm using a third-party software (scyware.com). So I can communicate between different robots (also on different instances of cAlgo) . Alternatively you can use a boolean value stored in an external text file which can be read by the other robot. For example:  tradeIsAllowed == true -> begin trading on second robot

Thanks for the link! I just gave it a test and it actually worked. :)

The ability to communicate through different instances of cAlgo is still handy, I will take a look at the software you recommended. 

Thanks again!
