Hi from Uruguay, South America

Post by mrclinker » Tue Jul 14, 2009 5:24 pm

Hi folks!

I am Mr. Clinker, back in the programming saddle again after a client of mine who has been using a Clipper system since 1994, (yes, 1994), wants to move to Windows Xp.

My native language is Spanish, so forgive me if I make some spelling or grammar errors.

As you can imagine, I have tons of questions regarding this process of "code-rewriting", so I think you will be hearing of me very often.

Best regards to all.

Mr. Clinker

Hola Mr. Clinker

Welcome aboard, saludos from Turkey :)

Please don't hesitate for asking questions; without questions all answer are meaningless ;)

Also don't worry about language; here isn't TOEFL forum :)

Hi Mr. Clinker,

Welcome aboard.

I am sure we can learn from each other a lot.
East or West HMG is the Best.
South or North HMG is worth.
...the possibilities are endless.

Yes, some of my clients also still using very old programs originally developed with clipper :)

And some of them still using clipper programs with winXp (with some problems also ;) )

With best regards.

Hi from Russia, Mr. Clinker!

In our office I'm trying to move a lot of our very old soft (since 1992! yes!) from Clipper to Harbour (it's medicine management related: statistics, financial, stuff of reports for region and federal ministry... & other garbage...).

This soft is in use years and years... but we need to work in "XP world" (like your clients)... and in "after-XP world"... and in "Linux-world"... and in "WWW world" (with a little help from Roberto's HMGSCRIPT, I think :) )... And we don't want (and haven't enough hands and time) to rewrite this tons of code from "zero point"...

And in this situation only Harbour (+HMG of course!!) is "light in the darkness". :) So - you're in good (and friendly) place! :) Welcome!
