  • 1. Printer stoping time
    Dear all, I have a one problem about printing (I hope that it's not a new one for you): Clipper 5.2.e, Blinker (I have use library blxclp52), Windows NT 2000, (matrix) Epson LQ 580 When I send a one page on the printer after a few lines printer stops. I must wait about 30-40 seconds and after that time, printer continue with it's work. About printing paper - everything is correct (I have escape sequnce) but final results are correct. When I switch to Task Manager at stopped time I saw that CPU, one short peirod (2-3- sec), shows 100%. Have anybody of you meet with a some problem and how can you solve it? Thanks for your answers.

  • 4. The keyboard buffer during TBROWSE
    Hi at all. Working with a TBROSEDB during the inkey() state, if I press a key, the inkey function return the value of the key pressed. BUT if I write a string and not one key only and if I want to display this string that is certainly into the buffrer of the jeybord, how can I do? Thank P.Pietro

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.

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?
