Finally a real Linux Clipper Compiler
more than one year ago I decide to find a way to migrate my program to other operating system other than MS-DOS.
I have tried FlagShip : just I remember that was necessary one month to convince developers that there was a bug in the macro compiler. After that the training period expire and FlagShip company delete any other possibility to continue my test ! In any way it was enough to understand than FlagShip is a lot slower that CLIP.
I have tried xBase++ : RDD doesn' t have possiblity to use WHILE clause in index creation !!!! That lock any possibility to create efficient programs. I ask to them to insert such facility ...... one year passed ... nothing done !!!!
Of course exist also other bugs: it is slow !!!.
I have tried Harbour : try to comunicate a bug to them and let me know if somebody will answer you.
MAX : it is fast but unfortunately it is not Clipper 5.2 compatible.
At the end I discover CLIP !
1) It works very fast
2) Any problem is solved very fast (sometimes 60 minutes !)
3) My programs works like in Clipper but, of course, in a better operating system !
Clip people, you are doing a great job !
