  • 1. Rmake under Win XP Professional
    Hi all, I have to modify an old clipper program that I didn't use since W98. I have installed everything and I can use clipper and blinker, but when I try to use rmake I always get the same message: F:\SOURCE\cabtrac\FUENTES>rmake RMAKE 1.4 Copyright (c) 1989-1995 Computer Associates International, Inc. RMAKE=/XW4144 /XS4144 Fatal RMAKE/R3002 Can't open: '.RMK' That happens even if I type a file name or not. I don't know why I get this message. Can someone help me? Thanks in advance.

  • 3. Escape Lib
    Hi there I am using ESCAPE Lib for printing to HP, but when I use the function HPPCX to print pcx image, the program bombs my version is 3.5, I believe that ver. 4 is more reliable, and I would like to grt any suggestion about usibg this lib. (to use a diff. product for printing to HP printers is too much time consuming now, since i have over 15000 lines of code for printing misc. forms) Thanks

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.

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.

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,
