Use the new "debug filter" to help you refine your strategies.

Hi jkiehle:

I went to the filter you posted on 9/4/04 under the Discussion Forum, "Intraday Trades".
I clicked fetch stocks and got the message:
** "Potential Filter Error" ** .
Then I hit "debug filter" ...
Here's the message:
Filter Syntax checking aborted due to too many set statements.
Due to performance issues, the Beta version of the StockFetcher Filter Syntax checker is unable to process filters with more than 10 set{} statements.
I guess your filter was too long.

Guys,

Are you getting messages like, "Filter Syntax checking aborted due to too many set statements. Due to performance issues, the Beta version of the StockFetcher Filter Syntax checker is unable to process filters with more than 10 set{} statements"?

Consider breaking your filter into 2, 3, or more sections. No, not as a permanent measure, but as a very temporary one. For testing purposes, and testing purposes only.

If you do, and when you do, then you will be able to check those sections of code separately, individually, and then you CAN locate any suspected bug(s) in just a few minutes.

This one of the techniques that has worked for me many times, and I'm sure this very same technique will work for you, too.

I hope this helps.

Rob
