QuickFIX is a well-known open-source implementation of the FIX protocol. This library has been ported to numerous languages, though for the moment I am concentrating the on C/C++ implementation.
Unfortunately, I do not know C++ at all but my knowledge in C is rather high (professional level). My goal is to develop an order management system that will be based on QuickFIX. I would be glad to have my system both as fast as possible and well designed. Because I do not want to produce a messy product, I would prefer to implement it in C.
So, my question is pretty simple: Is it possible to use QuickFIX in C project? I have been trying to figure this out with no success. I did not manage to find any information online. I would appreciate it if someone could provide her/his experience or at least point me in the right direction.
