Release Notes: This release uses pthreads to implement asc2ms, so increasing the performance drastically. This release has a new feature in asc2ms to forcewrite the database if the files are locked. Performance tuning has been done on the utils using Intel VTune Performance analyser.
Release Notes: ms2asc now has a --descMaster command option for describing the contents of the database. A new Perl script for sorting ms2asc outputted data was also added.
Release Notes: The ms2singleasc.pl tool was added to supplement the ms2asc tool. This tool creates per ticker ASCII files. A lot of optimizations were made to the asc2ms tool, so it now runs noticeably faster.
Release Notes: A progress bar indicator was added for both asc2ms and ms2asc. The issue in the Windows version of asc2ms were the last line was not being converted was fixed.
Release Notes: asc2ms now takes input from the standard input device, and ms2asc outputs to the standard output device.
Release Notes: A problem where converting high volumes of data crashed the program was fixed.
Release Notes: Support was added for up to 4000 scrips in a single folder. Some optimizations in initialization were made.
Release Notes: This release adds "XMASTER" support and an option to ignore "Open Interest". It supports up to 2000 scripts in a single directory.
Release Notes: asc2ms has an option to create F*.DOP files. asc2ms with the traverse folder option creates 0-9 folders apart from A-Z folders. It detects duplicate records and tries to reuse these records for new price data files. It has an option to create new price data files. If this option is disabled, only existing price data files will be updated with new data.
Release Notes: asc2ms now supports the updateRecord option if recordFile exists. asc2ms and ms2asc now support priority levels. Supported priority levels are high, medium, and low. This feature is useful to reduce load on the system when it's used to convert data in bulk, in batch mode. ms2asc now supports purging of zero volume data, and a new option [--purgeZeroVol|-p] has been introduced to achieve the same. ms2asc now supports selective price data output.
