Programing LUA question

Postby Kilgharrah » Thu Mar 02, 2017 6:27 am

Hi,
What is the purpose of +1 in this line of programming, because sometimes they put it and other times not.

The purpose of first is to ensure the existence of data in a certain period?

Code: Select all
first= math.max(FastMA1.DATA:first(), SlowMA1.DATA:first())+1;


Thanks

Yes

first= math.max(FastMA1.DATA:first(), SlowMA1.DATA:first()

Will be enough if you're accessingMA FastMA1 and SlowMA1 only.
