  • 1. Recompiling a clipper app
    I inherited some Clipper applications and trying to recompile one of them is giving me fits. There is a library that is included that when I try and recompile the exe, it gives me the following message: BLINKER : 1122 : TR.LIB(TR_SRRSR) : compiled with Summer '87 not 5.x. I'm using jbmake to compile the program. It says at the end that it was a success but it does not create the new exe. My questions: 1. I'm not sure I can find the code for the tr.lib file, but if I do, are these generally written and compiled in Clipper? If so, how does one compile a library 2. Because I can't find code for this, I'm wondering if this is sort of a standard lib file that I could get from it familiar to anyone else? Any help at all would be sincerely appreciated!

Same PC etc, XP Home SP3 > guess your Code is ok, did you change Compiler/Linker Version ? No, as before > is your PATH, LIB, INCLUDE pointing to right Directory ? Yes Since I sent my 1st message I have renamed a large function so it is invisible and the exe then works (except the renamed function). Current (working) exe size is 1,418,752 bytes. Is there a limit to exe size? Reece

  • 4. Exe won抰 run - application written in Clipper 5.2 d/Clip4Win.
    Hi everyone I having problems with an application written in Clipper 5.2d/ Clip4Win. There are 56 .prg files that make up the system and 13 header files that Ie written. The main PRG file has a lot of private variables, but this has not been a problem until now. I recently added a bit of code and altered one of the home-grown header files. This forced most of the PRG files (all the ones that include the header) to compile. I now find that the exe won run. I have put a message at the start of the main PRG file (after locals, before privates) but the exe doesn get that far. Has anyone any ideas? Please don suggest Harbour, there is a big investment in the existing code. Thanks Reece

Blinker Executable Clipper

Postby julian1984 » Thu, 13 Jan 2005 11:23:05 GMT


I use Clipper 5.2e + Blinker 5.1

Which command is correct ?

Blinker Executable Clipper F128
Blinker Executable Clipper F:128
Blinker Executable Clipper //F:128

My config.sys setting files open 40 and I use command blinker to open
files 128.
Why my application still error dos 4 ?
Which setting read first, config.sys or blinker ?

So... you tell your system that (MS-DOS) programs can be allowed to have
40 files opened simultaneously; you tell Blinker to create your program
so that it opens up to 128 files simultaneously; and you wonder that
your application runs out of file handles? Gosh, I wonder _what_ could
be the problem...

Both. They have different purposes. The files= setting in config.sys
tells your system how many files can be opened, max. The Blinker setting
tells your _program_ how many files it may try to open. If the latter
exceeds the former, the result is often, as you've seen, a somewhat
predictable failure.

Julian says:

   I use same Clipper and same Bliinker as you.

   The linker command I use is:


   However, my config.sys file on my Win98SE machine has: 

   You must have your config.sys file declare at least five more files than
your bliinker link script requires.

1.need Blinker for Clipper .obj

I have a clean compile and .obj file, but have problems creating .exe
with blinker (circa CA Clipper Summer '87). I'm wanting everything
(New clipper.exe, overcl87.lib, clipper.lib,...I mean everything!) but
will settle for Blinker.exe. Maybe someone can link the .obj for me?

I have a general batch file to compile simple one programme clipper files,
