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.
Statistical Me gives an online representation of how unique users are based on Australian government census data. The data, pulled from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS), is also accessible through the Statistical Me API. The data upon which the statistics are pulled include gender, age, marital status, number of children, income, vehicles, rent/mortgage, and more. Users roll virtual dice until they uncover a profile that fits the user. Based on the results, users receive a graphical and numerical representation of their uniqueness as compared to fellow Aussies.
