5.3 Manuals needed

5.3 Manuals needed

5.3 Manuals needed

Many moons past I wrote a number of applications in Clipper (S'87- Nantucket 5.0, IIRC). Unfortunately, all my code, software and manuals disppeared...

Now I've got hold of a copy of CA5.3, without the manuals and I've discovered that I can't remember any of it.

Anyone know where I can obtain the manuals? (or even a brief guide)

RE: 5.3 Manuals needed


Thanks for this - very useful site, but they only seem to have the first half of the tech. ref. (A-M), can't find the other half!

Any other ideas?


RE: 5.3 Manuals needed

Try this site.

RE: 5.3 Manuals needed

Thanks again, but that appears to be the same files that are available on whitetown, No O-Z ......


RE: 5.3 Manuals needed

The rest of the info is in a separate chapter in that same file, I recall there being a limit on the number of items or text inside a Norton Guide chapter. I'm using ExpertGuide, and I can select under the Language menu: Functions (A-M), Functions (N-Z), Commands, Classes, Statements, Operators and Directives. So it's all there in c53g01c.zip (Guide to CA-Clipper), in the other 3 files are the ustilities, extra libs etc. documented.


RE: 5.3 Manuals needed

Excellent, sorted, thankyou all.
