Much better, Dragan ! Congrats :)

The URL: Is re-directing to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clipper, sorry I do not know why browser makes this. But would be good to find the same way of URL as Harbour you have found it to correct it.

I have some more suggestions. But please consider as constructive criticism. I'm afraid of offending and it is not my intention, please if this bother you let me know, okay ?
  • In the Clipper source demo, basically you GET 2 + 2 = 4 but in HMG picture is displaying 2 + 2 = 2 (it will seem that the HMG does not sum correctly)

  • I made this code demo that can be replace in Clipper source compiled in HMG. This option of console compiling in HMG is more one option you can show it (even compiling thru HMG IDE).

    Code: Select all

    REQUEST HB_GT_WIN_DEFAULT
    
    Function Main()
    SetMode(25,80)
    CLS
    n1 = 2
    n2 = 2
    @ 10,10 GET N1 PICTURE '999'
    @ 10,15 SAY '+'
    @ 10,20 GET N2 PICTURE '999'
    @ 10,25 SAY '='
    READ
    n3 = n1 + n2
    @ 10,30 SAY N3 PICTURE '999' COLOR "GR+/R"
    INKEY(0)                                               
    Return Nil
    I've replace last GET for a SAY and INKEY(0) to keep waiting pressed key.
    You can adapt same code for Clipper and for GUI mode (with result in different color too)

  • Another important point is that you would use MS Word at English text for spell checking. Any of us use to write wrongly in English, but this will help you (then you will find some misspellings in your test).
Thank you Dragan, for your efforts ! And please go ahead !

When I click at Clipper URL from you pdf, my browser redirect to other link. I just advising that for any unknown reason is coming a wrong site not as you indicated. I do not know if this happend only with me. I use Google Chrome.

Have you tested from your pdf clicking in that link ?
