  • 1. Sharing violation - Comix - SBS Server
    Hello, I moved our application from ntx to comix index files. We have a lot of Memo files and now .ftp files are really much smaller. I also like the container solution for the indexes. Much less files in this directory now. The problem is, I have a reindexing procedure who reindex all files and make some check. For a reason that, one dbf file is remained open. I didn't have had this problem with the ntx files. If I try to start the procedure who use this dbf files, then I get a "Sharing Violation" error. But nobody is using this file. I did some check directly with the administrator right on the server and nobody is using this dbf files. I also download "Filemon.exe" to check with files are used and I get the same result this files are no share on it. Could somebody help me? Thanks in advance for any help. Otto

  • 5. Email from Clipper App
    Is there a way to initiate an email from within a clipper application. I tried swpruncmd('mailto: ') but that failed. My application is a reservation process where I receive the form in an email box, process it, now I want to easily send the results back to the sender's email address. Any ideas?? Thanks Bob Stuart

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.

   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.

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?
