  • 1. superlib rat_event and keyboard
    Hello, I am using ther superlib the first time and I am very impressed. As now I have only one problem. If I use rat_event it seems that the clipper keyboard command does not work. Is there a workaround or is one of the undocumented parameters to set. I use rat_event ( 0, .f.,.f., @c,@r) Thanks Andreas
  • 2. swpruncmd problem
    I am using swpruncmd with clipper 5.3b and blinker 7 to run pyrobatch. While it works on my computer and our test computer (both XP), the client computer (a Dell, also XP) runs pyro under the swpruncmd successfully then immediately dies on the swap back in. both pyro and the clipper program are gone and it's back in windows again.No error returned or anything. I have implemented a swap dir and changed comspec to from cmd (which is the way it works on my computer) to no avail. Answers anyone, this is getting hot for me.
  • 3. Citrix anyone?
    Does anyone know if Clipper (5.2e) apps can be run with Citrix remote-control software?
  • 4. XP and Mouse
    The Position terrible! Sorry, I am know English very bad. This text translated (by) automatically. The our toolsmiths have puted the user's Windows XP. Now our software (Clipper 5.32) works very sloppy (Not works!). Blinker in our country officially will not sell. Such buying approximately 2-3 months. You will not prompt, where possible take some files from Blinker 7 while we shall buy the official version? I need: BLINKER.HLP BIN\*.* CLP\*.* LIB\BLXCLP53.LIB OBJ\BLDCLP53.OBJ OBJ\BLXCLP53.OBJ With best regards, Andrey Maximenko. E-mail: XXXX@XXXXX.COM
  • 5. Am In a Panic !!
    Dear Friends, I did the unforgiveable today (after 6 hours of intense work) and programming: I entered at the Command Prompt: C:\mydir\DEL *.* I guess I was tired and thought I was deleting some files from a CD-RW Anyway, all of my old Unerase, Undelete, and Undel proggies don't work on this Win98SE machine (even when I boot in pure DOS). Has anyone got an *unerase* or *undelete* utility that will work in DOS or at the Windows command Prompt. Thanks for any utility/help offered ! -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.

   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?

2.General batch file to compile Clipper/Blinker

I have a general batch file to compile simple one programme clipper files,
