    Hi I am using swpruncmd for the first time.Till now I used run command as follows I ran my prog like e:\info4\myprog.exe in the program I have cPDataDir := "\info4\06\pt06" cChgdir := "cd"+cPDataDir run (cChgDir) ? FT_DEFAULT() + ":\" + CURDIR() + "\" // new path -> e:\info4\06\pt06\ instead of above I changed my prog as follows e:\info4\myprog.exe Success := swpruncmd(cChgDir) IF (!success) ? "Swap failed" majerr = SWPERRMAJ() minerr = SWPERRMIN() ? "Error codes :", majerr, minerr clear all clos all quit ELSE ? "Swap succeeded" ? "Errorlevel :", SWPERRLEV() ? FT_DEFAULT() + ":\" + CURDIR() + "\" // new path -> e:\info4\ ENDIF after running above I got "Swap succeeded" "Errorleve : 0" but the path remaind at e:\info4\ Pls advice what mistake I am commiting my os is w98 secondly I am planning to moving to winXP.I have heard it does not have dos-prompt facility.If it is so how do we compile and run applications compiled in clipper ?

  • 3. set relation much slower with ADS.
    Hi, First of all When i was a clipper program I never used set relation and set filter . I trying to make a very old program made by a fake programmer to use ads. This will only be used while the next program(written in JAVA) is being made. Many things became fast as it was espected but erything that is realted to the comand set relation became really really slow and the network traffic increased a lot. The guy made a set relation and then Applied a filter on it, I guess ADS is sending the whole table to the client and the clipper program is then discarding the records by using set filter. But why it had become so much slower than a pure clipper program? Can AOF be the solution whitout i have to make changes in the program "logic"? Regards, Marcello Dias
  • 4. padr in index
    Hi, I was just doing some smaller changes in an older application. Suddenly I get a 1449 error when creating an index where padr() is used I index with: r = padr(trim(land)+trim(plz),11) s = "LANDPLZ" index on &r to &s this works since years - now it suddenly does not. My changes were far away of touching anything in the near of this error. Thanks Florian

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
