  • 1. Dos error 51: remote computer not listening
    I have a good friend of mine with my clipper 5.2e application on PC stand-alone under Windows XP. No network !! No remote computer !! The program is write with the normal "use" command (...without "exclusive" for network..) and on many other stand-alone computers work perfectly for years. I can't understand why this error: DBFNSX/1006 Create error: C:\DIRNAME\TOTAL.EDX (DOS error 51) Any help ? Thanks, and Happy 2006 to all ! Rob
  • 2. NNetcap and windows XP
    Does anyone know if the Clipper Tools, NNetCap commands work with Windows XP. I know that the Novell capture is not supported in XP, but will it work with the windows capture (Net Use). I need to know before I start rewriting all of my programs. Thanks
  • 3. Struggling with some legacy code I have to understand
    HI Guys, I was hoping some members of this group could provide me some advice on some clipper code I have that I need to migrate to MySQL 5.0. I have the following line asize(A, 3) // Is this creating an array of size 3, correct? This is then followed by these lines.... messtot := A[1] order_val := A[2] order_count := A[3] Which confuses me as the array never has it's elements initialised. Also another part of the code contains a " .t. " and I have no idea what this refers to, is it a running count or the time? mesg_tree(Aresult, .t., cdate, mcode, morders) where the function has parameters as listed below function mesg_tree(Aresult, first_time_in, cdate, mcode, morders) Any help or even reference to a syntax manual would be absolutely great....Thanks is advance Carlton Dickson
  • 4. tbrowse problem
    I've changed a file structure substituting a 60 character field for a memo field. Previously the tbrowse displayed all 60 characters. Now it displays only the first 20 onf each memo field. I would like up to 60 to again be displayed. Does anyone know what causes the apparent truncation? I don't think it is my code but I've never worked with tbrowes and memo fields together before. TIA

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?
