not to sound mean - but when ever I have a programming question I google it

for example with your question I would google "easy language programming for beginners"

tons of hits...

I use this approach for any and all programming questions of any level or skill set

where I work our software and network engineers routinely use this approach when resolving weird issues, specifically ones we have never encountered before

Brian Hazel,

Tradestation provides lots of information on their website - like the EasyLanguage Essentials PDF for example.

To fix your error, simply make sure that the divisor is not zero, before the division.

if divisor <> 0 then
   quotient =  divident / divisor 
quotient = 0 ;

Depending on the programming language popularity, asking a question there should help.

Also, if you want to learn programming from scratch there are a bunch of resources on the web, just google javascript tutorial

I find I get divide by zero errors often when working with continuous futures. As the prices get backadjusted you sometimes end up with a Close of zero which messes up calculations for percentage gains/losses.

There's not a real good way around it -- what I usually do is just add a try/catch around it now that Easylanguage supports that which prevents the error from surfacing. Or you can do what the previous post said and check for zero each time you divide, but then you need to figure out what to do (and make sure what you do won't affect a moving average for example).
