Clipper is a member of the Xbase family of languages. It has a large installed base, mainly in the DOS world, but also with Windows extensions such as Fivewin. Skills and resources are becoming scarce to maintain legacy systems. Patrick O'Beirne provides Clipper technical information both as a training course and consultancy and software remediation.
We can even recover source code from Clipper Summer 87 executables and in some cases from Clipper 5.2. Use of a decompiler requires your warranty that you have the rights to perform decompilation.
