I read there is a new interface called R-Protocol, and also there was a mention in a Youtube video by Rithmic that there would be a new platform independent interface for the Rithmic API.
Is it (like IQFeed and probably like FIX) a protocol on top of TCP/IP, that can be used with socket send/recv calls from any OS and language? For example, can it be used from both macOS and Linux in C? If so, does it require a gateway application running on the local desktop, which again makes it a bit OS dependent?
I am asking not only because of OS and language considerations, but also because that would make it easy to integrate and optimize efficiently within a specific existing application structure.
Also, I would be grateful for any additional info regarding this interface.
Matt Z suggested that it would be good to post such questions here in the forum.
