You can use Harbour MiniGUI IDE - A Freeware utility which has the functionality of HMG make utility along with IDE.

Go here to download HMG IDE.
East or West HMG is the Best.
South or North HMG is worth.
...the possibilities are endless.

Thanks for your quick answer. I like to try, to move a Clipper 5.2e application to HMG for some test. I prefer to work without IDE. I'm using Textpad as editor en like to find a simple Make program to manage my 25 PRG's. Actually I can from Textpad call a “compile_all.bat” script that does everything in a few seconds.
I tried to understand the “compile.bat” sample script, but it is not so easy to understand it.

I too am not using IDE. I prefer to use text editor for writing programs.

Even though MiniGUI IDE is meant for Integrated Development, It can be used as an in-built make tool also.

You write a HMG .prg file. Have its name (or .prg files with the called modules/functions/procedures and resource files) in a file with .hpj (HMG Project File) extension.

Suppose, You have a hello.prg code file.

You just have to create a file called hello.hpj with hello.prg as the first (and only line if there is only one .prg file) line.

This would be your hello.hpj file contain.

Code: Select all

hello.prg
Open the file with HMG IDE.

From HMG IDE, select Project -> Run.

That's all! You don't even go to command prompt and no batch file business. :)

Many thanks for your help.
OK I will try your idea. Because until yet I didn't find a simple Make sample for HGM.
I also, I prefer to use text editor for writing programs.

You please refer to the possibilities of new HMG IDE 2.5.5a from here, which would be more helpful.

Hello rathinagiri
Once again, many thanks for your help.

I make test with HMG IDE to compile some samples. Look good. But I don't wont to use a IDE. Aktually I didn't understand how you can make a multi language applicatation with this tool.
I need someting like this batch in \hmg\batch\compile.bat but with the possibility to compile more prg's.
I think I have to find out how a compile process with harbour, minigui and gcc work.
Aktually with clipper I have in every directory's a CompSinge.bat and CompAll.bat batch witch a called directly from my Editor.
Best regards
Otto
