Welcome to the open-source repository for the Kx user community

Note: If you are a licensed kdb+ user wanting to download the latest version of the software, go to is an evolving collection of community resources for kdb+ users. It contains cookbooks, a tutorial, and user-contributed code. Designed to encourage community participation, was built using open source project collaboration tools: Trac, a system for issue reporting, and Subversion, a version control system.

Both Trac and Subversion are implemented with a Wiki interface, enabling all members of the Kx user community to add content, make changes, and open tickets from any web browser.

Who Can Use

While the public has read-only access to all of the content on, you must have a password in order to add/change pages or to create a ticket. Email to request a password.

What's in

About - The current page; introduces the site.

Code - Quickly access user-contributed code (by contributor name), code referenced in the cookbooks, and kdb+ utilities (taken from the page). [what is the fastest way to find out what new utilities or changes to utilities have been implemented by Arthur and whether anyone's found a bug in them??]

Library - Browse cookbooks, a reference manual, a tutorial, and the utilities and contributions directories [HOW do you set this up to notify you of new changes -- the current "docs" page says you can do this but doesn't say how] [Also: leave the rest of the linked items on the old docs page off this list, they confuse the library section, and they are best left as top- navigation items on their own.]

Changes - Review ticket changes, Subversion contributions, and Wiki changes.

Contribute - Open the Subversion tool so you can upload your kdb+ programs to the library.

Tickets - Search existing tickets or create a new ticket (requires login).

Search - Search the entire site for any keyword of interest.

For security, if you log into from a shared computer, please close your browser when you end your session.
