It is easy to compile several prgs.
Write down all the prg filenames each in a separate line, keeping the prg file having main() function as the first line.
Save the file giving an extension of .hpj and open the same using HMG-IDE. You need not worry about any designing of forms there. Just press ctrl+F5 (Project->Build) or F5 (Project -> Run) or click the play button there to build and run.
So, HMG-IDE is a two way utility to build a HMG project and as well as an IDE.

As Rathinagiri said, it is easy to compile several prgs with HMG-IDE.
As cited in HMG-IDE page of Viva Clipper], HMG-IDE is both a Project Manager and a Form Designer.
The project management tools allow you all project based works with interactive manner. This includes building and running projects without complex batch processing and environment configuration tasks.
Build or open a project and add or exclude project elements ( forms (.fmg), modules (.prg ) whatever you want. This way have a big advantage: since HMG-IDE is at the same time a highly sophisticated "make" utility, only changed files will be compiled.
Alternatively you can use SET PROCEDURE TO
In other hand, "The samples compile.bat deals with only a single prg" isn't correct. If you read it you will be seen "%1 %2" expressions. They are command parameters and each for a separate file.
BTW, in only one night you solved almost all about HMG, congratulations!
