  • 1. Database Record loss problem
    Hello all- I am running Clipper 5.2 from a Win 98 box, with the executable and the databases residing on a Mandrake Linux install using Samba. Early morning we automatically update several databases with log files from the previous day. Once this is done, another program reindexes each of the databases. My problem is, that one database (and one only) has random data dropout occurring in it. I don't mean in the records that are added, but in previously entered records, so when you update a log from yesterday, a couple of records from two weeks ago could be randomly affected. It's always the same pattern, a normal record, a blank record, then a record that is "half" full (First fields empty, later fields have data). I've gone through and manually restored the missing data, only to have different data disappear the next day. I've tried renaming the database and copying it to a new location, same with the indices, and renaming/recreating the folder as well to rule out drive corruption. The database in question has 1,300,000 records (Although a similar database for a different machine has 2 million+ records). I would suspect the Samba link (I'm not sure what version is running, an old employee set it up), but it is only happening in one database. Anyone else have problems like this, or possibly point me towards a solution? Aodhan

  • 3. help about HI-SCREEN XL
    HI-SCREEN XL is an old multi language screen generator, and not particulary a clipper product, but some clipper developers have used it. I have just received a big clipper application where all the screens are built with HI-SCREEN XL. But they have lost the box and the book of HI-SCREEN XL.... I don't kwow anything about HI-SCREEN XL and have no help from PC Soft who has developed HI-SCREEN XL many years ago. Can anybody help me to find or to buy a version of the product and documentation ????
  • 4. Source code documentor.
    Is there any Clipper source code documentor like dFLOW, DOC or SNAP that supports preprocessor directives, etc. ?

    I'm porting a current Clipper 5.2e for DOS app to xHarbour. I'm getting the following undefined symbols from functions in Clipper Tools III & SIx driver. Where can I find replacements ? ON the xHarbour doc I don't see the serial communications (COM_OPEN, COM_SEND, etc.) functions from Clipper Tools III ? Are they not implemented or what ? Thank you for your help.

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.
