  • 3. clipper 5.2e / rmake / XP not compiling
    Hi All, Just completed installing XP. Seems that rmake is not compiling the .obj files. At start of rmake I receive the folloiwng 2 messages: ERROR an Extended Memory Manager is already installed, XMS Driver not installed. At that point rmake continues to run however nothing is compiled. the rmake program does display all the individual programs though. Tried combinations of rmake command line switches to no avail. I looked for other posts concerning this topic and tried various things offered but no help. Until I get this resolved I'm stuck using my notebook for development. Thanks in advance for assistance!
  • 4. DOS 4 Error with Win98 on board
    With Win 98 on board, but running in DOS I get a DOS 4 Error when at least three different Clipper applications I have written attempt to open the fifteenth file (either DBF or NTX). This happens regardless of what I set FILES= to in CONFIG.SYS in the root directory and reboot; and I get the same result even if I remove the FILES= line. Has anyone out there run into this problem with Windows 98? How have you gotten around it? Sam Garber (respond to XXXX@XXXXX.COM )

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,
