  • I have a bunch of old Clipper *.prg utilities that I'd like to compile and use. Most are DBF-cleanup utilities that I use in ETL projects. All are console apps. Tried using the xsc compiler command without success. Is there another way?

    Thanks in advance for any help and suggestions

  • Hi Joe,
    I would use XIDE to compile one of them, and look at the commandline parameters.
    AFAIK there are a lot to pass to the compiler for clipper utilities.
    Maybe you could post one of the smaller ones here so Chris or Robert can indicate the correct way.

    P.S. Nevertheless I would organize them in one XIDE project because it makes it easier to manage them

  • I guess the easiest way is to create a x# project and then compile it using MSBuild. MSBuild takes care of calling the X# Compiler for you.
