How can I display gif files in Clipper Summer 87

How can I display gif files in Clipper Summer 87

I'm still using the Clipper Summer 87 compiler, and I want to display a gif graphic format inside my program.

Anybody has a tool or code in doing that, also, I would like to manipulate on what graphics to display.

Hope someone can help me with this.



RE: How can I display gif files in Clipper Summer 87

I don't *think* there is a native tool for doing this - it just wasn't an issue back in the late 80s and early 90s when Clipper was the bees knees.

I think you could do it with a 'Run' command though, perhaps loading MSPaint to open the file?

There might be a third party tool around still - but I've not come across it!
