  • 1. index key value
    is there some regular (easy) method to retrieve value of index key "burned" into index file of current record? of course, it suppose to have dbf and ntx opened. purpose is to check the index integrity. idea is to skip through dbf with opened index and compare index key value from index file with recalculated value from dbf file using indexkey() expression. of course, theoreticaly, you may allways do reindexing, but that operation request exclusive use of database, what is seldom available, especially not with many concurent users. one (indirect and slow) workaround would be to calculate index key value from current record of dbf, then to perform seek and to check that index is positioned at same record. for not unique key ocurences there should be additional processing.

    To All I have just recently purchased an Epson LX-300 + for one of my Clients - after installing the drivers and printing a test page from Windows print properties I tried printing from my DOS clipper app but nothing happens - there are no errors and no print jobs in the spooler , but if I type the following at the DOS prompt "type autoexec.bat > lpt1" it works and from then on my program prints okay. The printer is on lpt1 local port . Any suggestions or work arounds. Thanks Colin Haig

Blinker Executable Clipper

Hi,

I use Clipper 5.2e + Blinker 5.1

Which command is correct ?

Blinker Executable Clipper F128
or
Blinker Executable Clipper F:128
or
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 ?

Thx,

Julian

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:
   I use same Clipper and same Bliinker as you.

   The linker command I use is:

   BLINKER EXECUTABLE CLIPPER //E0;F100;

   However, my config.sys file on my Win98SE machine has: 
      FILESHIGH=127

   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

Hi,
I have a general batch file to compile simple one programme clipper files, 
involed with:
CL <filename>

Contents are:
del %1.EXE
clipper %1 /D__IS52
if not errorlevel 1 blinker file %1,ctus,__wait_b lib ct,nanfor,cpmi,oslib

I have big make and link scripts for may main application that contains many 
files, this includes a:
BLINKER EXECUTABLE CLIPPER F101

My question is, how can I simply get the embedded files command into my 
exe's without building a big complicated make/link script? Has anybody got a 
good, simple method?

Thanks in advance
