  • 1. Porting Clipper application to Delphi 6
    Can anyone suggest where I can find the "best" component for Delphi 6, which will allow me to use as many of the the Clipper commands/functions as possible? I'm trying to avoid re-inventing the wheel by re-writing. Thanks -- F. XXXX@XXXXX.COM ------=(*)=------ The heart of a fool is in his mouth, but the mouth of the wise man is in his heart.

  • 3. Importing MEMO Fields
    Hi, I have a clipper application with data that I need to import into MS-Access. All works fine apart from the memo data. Although I have a DBF and DBT File with corresponding names (i.e. CUSTOMER.DBF, CUSTOMER.DBT), the contents of the DBT File does not show up in the resulting Access-Table. This is the case no matter if I link or import the data in Access. The structure of the Access Table does not contain a memo field, either. The data can be read and edited from the clipper application and is not corrupt in any way. For testing purposes I have found an old copy of DBaseIII+ which I used to set up a table containing a memo field. After importing it into access the memo data was all in a table field of type MEMO. So this seems to work - usually. Can anyone help, please Thanks Perlie
  • 4. Getting Data from Access Databases
    Dear Friends, A doctor called me today and said he would use my services (i.e., my MicroMed Billing System) *if* I could somehow get much of his data (Patient's Names, Referring Doctor's Info, etc) from his "Access Database" into *my* system. He *apparently* can export his data to text files, etc. but doesn't seem to know too much about it. (same for me :(( ) What should I tell him to do (so that I can import his data into my standard .dbf databases ? A quick hint anyone ?? TIA, -Mel Smith

Blinker Executable Clipper

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?
