Is my understanding correct that someone could compile a different language within a general purpose IDE (Integrated Development Environment)? Example compiling Mql4 from Note-Pad++, I think it'll be a matter of setting the path and checking error messages in windows shell...But I'm not sure if it's really even possible.

If so, can someone also hint as to how I'll go about setting it up and checking the Compile logs. Thanks.

While manual trading you have to keep an eye on the values of several indicators. It is a little bit different from mechanical trading. If you have two or three indicators and you have chosen a one timeframe for trading, it is not a complicated task. But what will you do if you have five or six indicators and your trading strategy requires considering the signals on the several timeframes?

Metalang.exe is the compiler used to create ex4 files. You can setup it in editor to compile mq4 files directly, without Metaeditor GUI.

Yeah but how? Lets say I created the codes using plain Notepad and Created a .txt doc. Do I just drag the .txt doc to Metalang? Do I open command prompt and specify a path. Also, where do I get info about errors while compiling. Would metalang create a txt file with the errors. Where would that log be?

I use notepad2. I added a Windoze file association of .mql4 with MetaEditor.exe Pressing ctrl-L (execute document) brings up the file in the compiler just as double clicking on the icon in explorer does.
