Your source code is an MQL4 file (which has an MQ4 file extension - the part after the dot in the file name). It is a text-lke file. As an example this is code from a script ...

int start(){

   string str="";
   str= str + "MODE_DIGITS="        + DoubleToStr(MarketInfo(Symbol(),MODE_DIGITS),0)          +"\n";
   str= str + "MODE_SPREAD="        + DoubleToStr(MarketInfo(Symbol(),MODE_SPREAD),0)          +"\n";
   str= str + "MODE_STOPLEVEL="     + DoubleToStr(MarketInfo(Symbol(),MODE_STOPLEVEL),0)       +"\n";
   str= str + "MODE_FREEZELEVEL="   + DoubleToStr(MarketInfo(Symbol(),MODE_FREEZELEVEL),0)     +"\n";
   str= str + "MODE_TICKVALUE="     + DoubleToStr(MarketInfo(Symbol(),MODE_TICKVALUE),Digits)  +"\n";
   str= str + "MODE_TICKSIZE="      + DoubleToStr(MarketInfo(Symbol(),MODE_TICKSIZE),Digits)   +"\n";
   str= str + "MODE_POINT   ="      + DoubleToStr(MarketInfo(Symbol(),MODE_POINT),Digits)      +"\n";
   str= str + "MODE_MINLOT="        + DoubleToStr(MarketInfo(Symbol(),MODE_MINLOT),3)          +"\n";
   str= str + "MODE_MAXLOT="        + DoubleToStr(MarketInfo(Symbol(),MODE_MAXLOT),3)          +"\n";
   str= str + "MODE_LOTSIZE="       + DoubleToStr(MarketInfo(Symbol(),MODE_LOTSIZE),0)         +"\n";
   str= str + "MODE_MARGINREQUIRED="+ DoubleToStr(MarketInfo(Symbol(),MODE_MARGINREQUIRED),2)  +"\n";
   Comment(str);
   
   return(0);
}

You use the meta-editor to change the code and it will save it with a file extension of MQ4. When you click "compile" it converts the program into something more understandable to a computer, an EX4 file, an "executable" or binary file. This is what you actually run as a program.
