HbQt, HbXBP and HbIDE is back...
Let me enjoy the pleasure to announce the new home for
HbQt, HbXBP, HbIDE, which, for good reasons, were removed
from Harbour's repository.
How to get:
Create "addons" subfolder in Harbour root, as
And checkout with above link into this folder.
How to build:
Access the console as you would be accessing for Harbour.
CD to addons.
Issue: hbmk2 hbaddons.hbp -rebuild.
The binaries will be deposited in where Harbour build deposits.
Mailing-lists for developers and users will be announced later.
I am really thankful to Maurizio, Francessco Perillo, Francesco Saverio Giudice
for their whole hearted support. SF "hbaddons" project includes
Viktor and Przemek as Admins.
It would important here to mention that the bug of HbIDE
which throws GPF on EXIT on nix systems, reported by
Przemek has been fixed. This GPF was also present on
MSVC since begining, on all versions. The fix is materialized
in .qth files, where I overlooked QSpacerItem, which is a
non-QObject derived class but was being handelled as
if it was a QObject. So, until someone comes across any such
overlook, I can assume HbQt to be stable.
Hope to see you downloading these components...

Welcome to Clipper... Clipper... Clipper
In 1997, then using Delphi 3, I had already created 32-bits Windows applications for HRIS, ERP and CRM. In 2007, using Ruby on Rails, an AJAX powered CRM site running on Apache & MySQL was created and I am now using Visual Studio .Net 2008 to create web-based projects and Delphi 7 for Win32 applications using SQL2005 & DBFCDX.
So, why then am I reviving the Original Clipper... Clipper... Clipper via a Blog as CA-Clipper is a programming language for the DOS world ? Believe it or not, there are still some clients using my mission-critical CA-Clipper applications for DOS installed in the late 80's and up to the mid 90's. This is testimony to CA-Clipper's robustness as a language :-)
With the widespread introduction of Windows 7 64-bits as the standard O/S for new Windows based PCs & Notebooks, CA-Clipper EXE simply will not work and it has become imperative for Clipper programmers to migrate immediately to Harbour to build 32/64 bits EXEs
Since 28th January 2009, this blog has been read by 134,389 (10/3/11 - 39,277) unique visitors (of which 45,151 (10/3/11 - 13,929) are returning visitors) from 103 countries and 1,574 cities & towns in Europe (37; 764 cities), North America (3; 373 cities) , Central America & Caribeans (6; 13 cities), South America(10; 226 cities), Africa & Middle-East (12; 44 cities) , Asia-Pacific (21; 175 cities). So, obviously Clipper is Alive & Well : -)
