quant - I think that Mlt is not an EL function - at least in TradeStation or Multicharts.

A google search finds some EL code from Sep/02 that uses Mlt as an input but not a function:
If you need more help, perhaps you could post more info.

I was expermenting with the meander code in Easy language before I switched to Ninjascript and could never figure out what the mlt was calculating and still I am mystified...

If any code masters can explain to me what this is doing I might sleep a little better

Thanks Quantismo

Quant - In the meander code at the referenced link, Mlt is an input not a function. Mlt(2) means Mlt=2. My guess is that the original author abbreviated the word multiplier because he is using it as a multiplier for the standard devation. But he could have called this input anything from Soup to Nuts.

I don't know how to say this politely, but this is very basic EL syntax. Perhaps this document EL_Essentials would be helpful.
