This C/C++ library for Solaris operating systems is intended to be used with the Bloomberg API. The Bloomberg API provides free, unrestricted access to raw financial data on current market trades (either real-time or delayed), reference data on historical information, and records of intraday trading. As part of their Open Market Data Initiative the library is offered under a "free-use" license, which allows unrestricted access to the interface's header files, documentation, and programming examples. Developers should note that this Solaris library is not compatible with the Bloomberg Professional terminal (Desktop API). It is only compatible with Bloomberg Server API and B-Pipe data feed products.
