  • 1. Legacy - Upgrade of old Clipper App
    Long time that I have been out of Clipper development. A legacy application just return to me when the client decided to upgrade from Win98 to XP Suddenly my Clipper (Summer 87) application cannot print any more The app ran from mid 90's to now - First on DOS later on Win 95/98 to this day. I need a pointer to which toute is the BEST and QUICKEST to upgrade the app for the client His whole factory management depends on this app and thus I need to find a solution "fairly" quickly My Sort term solution is stagnation..... Let the app run on legacy WIN98 with Win XP compuiters around to enable easy access to USB devices, while I upgrade / redevelop the app for the XP envoronment. Any suggestions? Adriaan Snyman

Blinker Executable Clipper

Postby julian1984 » Thu, 13 Jan 2005 11:23:05 GMT

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
