For the past 25 years, I've been a contract software engineer with a lot of experience in back-end and middleware solutions; and low-level, real-time (sometimes embedded) mainly C-language projects. Also SNMPv2 and v3 MIBs and Agents. Over the years, though, I've done so many different and interesting kinds of things that I claim I can call myself a generalist.

I consider coding to be a perfectible craft with its own kind of beauty.

I'm always looking for new projects: pete@pwilson.net

comment Quantlib in JavaScript?
Sure, well understood. The question is about implementing Quantlib. Please don't move this question yet, though. If I don't see something in a day or two, I'll delete it.

comment Quantlib in JavaScript?
thanks for your thoughtful answer! Just for everybody's information, the SwigJS link you gave isn't a useful one any more. Further, SWIG is a package that must run on the server. I am looking for Quantlib on the client side. I should have made that clear in my question. Thank you again.

comment What do we really mean by put-call ratio and how should it be expressed?
Thanks for that opinion and direction. Decimal it is.

Thanks! Option #2 certainly seems the more sensible way, but risks confusing my visitors, who might be expecting option #1. Sigh.

Site is working today. It cured itself. Scary! sellmycalls.com/cgi-bin/chain

Sure, sure, I understand. Still, the article is interesting and worthwhile spending time on.

As a mere software engineer off the street, I see that I am way over my head and need to learn to swim in these confused and confusing waters. Perhaps I first have to learn the precise technical meaning of "invariant," intuitively clear in lay language but not so (as it seems to me) in this context. Thanks so much for the very interesting Meucci reference, a sea monster I'll have to wrestle with for a few days.

@Tal Fishman -- yes, I managed to insert a bug in the server code just before I left for the day. Sorry.

comment Is QuantLib more trouble than it's worth?
I meant that the results differed only by small amounts, so it seemed to me that QuantLib is appropriate for academics and professionals, and not really meaningful for the visitors that I plan for.
