  • 2. Mouse move+Win2000Pro+Causeway+Clipper 5.3b=GPF; nomouse.obj
    Hello all, Well, I have a Clipper application, compiled with Clipper 5.3b, linked with Causeway in protected mode, it runs under Windows 2000 Pro SP4, and when I move the mouse - I get Exception 0D etc. etc. Apparently, some people had used a file named nomouse.obj to combat a similar problem with Blinker. Unfortunately, I cannot find that file anywhere in the net. Is it in public domain? Can anybody send me it? (nomouse.obj). TIA Vassil Daskalov

  • 4. Compiling a .prg into an .exe file
    Hi, I have some source code for an old program we use, clipper I think, that ends in .prg I would like to make some changes to the .prg file so it doesn't require the users input to close the window when operations have been done...then I need to generate a .exe file from that .prg file somehow. I have tried using xharbour but this it is only a trial version and it seems to include certain .h file that when I compile the resulting .c file seems to throw up error messages. I would like to know if there is a better way of getting an .exe from a .prg Does anyone have any ideas on this one at all?

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.

   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?

2.General batch file to compile Clipper/Blinker

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