BOXER is a remarkably full-featured text editor which has quickly
become the favorite of all types of computer users: programmers and
writers -- power users and novices. BOXER is the result of an 8-year
effort by a self-proclaimed perfectionist, and the outcome is a highly
polished software program. Attention to detail is apparent throughout:
BOXER's interface is smooth, intuitive and courteous. Designed with an
emphasis on flexibility, BOXER can be easily configured to suit most
every user's taste. New users consistently praise BOXER in the
A complete feature list would be huge, so here are some of BOXER's
most important capabilities: multi-level Undo and Redo, Color Syntax
Highlighting, multiple files and windows, full mouse support, keyboard
reconfiguration, support for extended screen sizes, column marking,
macros, color, pull-down menus, word processing, and context sensitive
online help. Also: search with wildcards, compile within the editor,
small footprint shell, graphic drawing mode, auto indent, find mating
parenthetical characters, block commands: cut, copy, append, paste,
delete, write, print, fill, sort, total, average, case convert,
invert, entab, detab, more!

Click! Version 2.03. GPL Release. Complete source code included!
Click! is a Clipper source code reformatter and documenter.
Over the years, I have run into so much badly written/formatted code,
which I would tediously reformat line by line just to make it barely
readable, that I decided to create a tool which would automate _MANY_
of the tasks of turning ugly code into usable code.
Click! does reindent your source code, but it does a whole lot more
than that. It actually beautifies the alignment of all the elements of
Clipper that make up a source code program.
Now, Click! includes file to function and function to function cross
reference options which will create documents for you to trace your
programs operation, and the ability to put this information in the
Ugly looking code like that would kill most reindenters like:
w=(10%(y*x)) ; next
Click! processes into:
for x := 1 to 10
w := ( 10 % ( y * x ) )
Click! is the result of ten years of learning how the language works,
hundreds of hours of development, and about 25 great beta testers.

FT_DOC is a program which will extract routine documentation out of
source code which is documented using the Nanforum Toolkit
documentation header (FTHDR.PRG or FTHDR.ASM). It is capable of
creating the necessary input files for the Norton Guide compiler
(NGC), the Expert Help compiler (EHC) or a series of ASCII files which
can be browsed or printed.
FT_DOC needs a link file for the NGML or EHML linker. One which will
rebuild the current Toolkit guides is included. Basically, the program
will take all of input files and combine the appropriate documentation
into the correct NGC/EHC input files by matching the category field of
the input with the menu items in the linker file. FT_DOC determines
which compiler you will be using based upon the extension of the first
menu item in the file. Thus, if you have a NGO extension, you will be
using the NGC otherwise it assumes you will be using EHC. You need a
link file for ASCII output also.

in this format. The LIB utility combines these object modules into
libraries. LIBRA provides a user interface to the LIB program that is
both informative and intuitive.
Cool text file viewer
Working as a consultant doing Clipper maintenance and upgrades, I
(Gary Sandow) often find that the body of work needs to have the
variables table reduced. This can be done by the use of an array and
#define statements. However, manually looking for candidates for this
treatment can be time consuming.
The worse the original code, (in terms of variable declarations) the
more benefical this routine will be for you. If all variables are
properly declared, there will be no output for the CH other than the
header. The reason is that an array element cannot be "declared" via
PUBLIC, PRIVATE, LOCAL, STATIC, or an arguement list for a procedure
You may need to use the report feature is to find undeclared variables
and examine the program declarations of the ones used with highest or
lowest frequency to determine if they have important "scoping"
properties. The ones that don't, could have the declarations removed
(or commented out) and this program executed again to pick them up.
HINT: Variables that are only assigned a value once (frequency = 1)
should not have any scoping issues and are easiest "undeclare" and
save the table entry via the array.
This program will scan the source code (must all be located in one
directory) and identify variables and then checks to see if they are
declared. If they are not declared (PRIVATE, PUBLIC, LOCAL, STATIC)
then they this program can prepare a CH file to be included in each
PRG file. This is a "no pain" way of reducing variable table
The program creates an array called 'varlist' and the CH file. You
must put the line of code to define the array (see the CH file created
for details) early in the excution of the system and the #include of
the CH file at the top of each PRG. Then simply recompile and link.
This program creates (overwrites) two files: VARSXXX.DBF and VAR
SXXX.CDX You should be sure you don't have files by these names used
by your system.
This program does not write to your source code, but nevertheless, I
don't take any responsibility for the outcome. You bear all the risks
of using it. No warranty stated nor implied. The program my be freely
used as long as not altered.

SCC is a comprehensive utility that compares two files and generates
detailed reports (log files) that displays all text change differences
as they evolve. SCC has extensive help and easy-to-use menus,
technical orientation is not needed to run the product.
SCC records who, why, when, where and how changes were made, thus
maintaining a complete history of all text changes. SCC enables
detailed verification of ongoing version and document text changes
along with a high auditing accuracy, virtually eliminating any
undetected changes or errors.
SCC is feature rich, having many user selectable options to control
the printable log report types and format appearance. SCC can produce
a report based on a model of what's called all-purpose change control.
It can also do (selected) analysis to develop highly detailed
customized reports. Eg: SCC can help generate a "filtered" report of
what changes are important to what is irrelevant.
SCC supports several log type options (long, medium, crunch...) that
help re-construct any earlier and/or later version releases. SCC uses
a reverse/forward delta method to keep track of different versions.
All header file-id, code and documentation changes "between versions"
are kept within the SCC log report itself.
SCC has a log report viewing utility (with automatic synchronization)
that is unique in it's display. This viewing utility will show the
exact content of changes made down to the character level (not
detailed in most other comparison checker programs) where the most
difficult information- laden data is to be found.
The viewing utility has a status window that helps quickly and easily
identify the type of line comparisons between documents. This status
window will show how and why two lines compare Eg: "close match",
"common lines", "ignore upper/lower case", "ignore all white space",
"ignore character strings", "range move", etc..
SCC accepts ASCII text output from your favored editor. SCC features
friendly, menu-driven interfaces suitable for use by non-technical
personnel, as well as command line and batch file capability for the
SHROOM v2.4 - frees memory for running other programs from within the
Clipper RUN command. Works Great!

TDCLIP converts blocksaved THEDRAW files to Clipper screenvariable
TDCLIP is written for people who still like good old DOS programs and
are creative enough to give their programs a nice touch, but feel they
are limited by the possibilities of Clipper.
I ( Albert van der Ploeg ) always design my screens with TheDraw, save
'em in ASM-format and pop these screens through an ASM-routine. This
is fast and quite sufficient when it comes to fullscreen images, but
what if you need a smaller one in the middle of the screen, without
overwriting the rest? There's a workaround in assembler, but that's
quite a puzzle to most people. Ofcourse, you can do it with SAY or
DEVOUT(), but that's a whole lot of writing when you use many
TDCLIP reads blocksaved images created in TheDraw, and converts these
images to files containing variable declarations for Clipper. These
variables have a binary 'character-color' format which is used by
Clipper for saving screens with the SAVESCREEN() function. Therefore,
these variables can be restored to the screen by the RESTSCREEN()
function, for which a line is provided in the output-file.
Check all data in DBF Files for corruption.
This is a Text Search function similar to Norton's TS.EXE, however,
this one is written in Clipper using Clipper Tools III library.
