I tried to do this and assumed you can't... then saw a blog entry that said the custom functions are available in every plugin. So I thought I'd check.

What I meant is that the custom functions can be used within the vector-based language in every plug-in.

The custom functions cannot be used with other scripts such as the downloader scripts.

The Global script has some functions that compile vector-based formulas and then extract results.

Trading financial instruments, including foreign exchange on margin, carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
