# CODE SNIPPET #1: Read the old open symbols file during initialization.
# The following is a code snippet used inside a Seer trading platform
# Begin function at the trading account level. It reads in the entire
# old_open_syms file into an array. The date code in the first line of this
# file is shifted out and put into a global variable.
# The array variable is declared within Seer as a Seer trading account wide
# global variable, and is used as a reference to a new array created to hold
# the symbols.
# Open and read the old_open_syms file into a referenced array, using a
# global variable for the referencing. This array can then be used through
# this variable in the Bar function and End function.)
