Thank you vm Gareth.
I have a couple of follow-up Qs:

1) is it possible to write Add-in procedures that would take options from the program executing the add-in?

series_name.myproc(options)

2) Is it possible to initialize an object (a series in this example) with an Add-in procedure?

series1_name.myproc series2_name '''' where series2_name is the name assigned to the output series generated by myproc

What should I write in the myproc.prg add-in code to achieve these two goals?

Thanks

Yes to both questions. If you read through the add-in documentation, or look at any of the existing add-ins you can get some ideas.
