Hope you find what your're looking for.
If you have specific questions, ask me.  I've learnt a lot about Clipper in the past month.  I may know what you need to know.

>>I know it kind of sucks..

If there were a decent windows version, you could keep all vb's, delphi's and other junk as far as i am concerned.
REAL relational database handling in clipper! :)
But i agree, it is a bit old.
One thing though, try to get your hands on blinker and use it instead of clipper's rtlink (.obj linkers) which will let you use expanded mem and makes sure your apps run under windows (whatever version)
I have run in to too many lame clipper apps which don't!

If you do a search on clipper i'd bet you will be thrown dead with links! :)

Good Luck!

I have loads of old clipper stuff (used to program in it quite a lot). Give me an address and i'll burn a cd for you.
Also don't forget to check out the Norting guides that ship with the product you can find a lot of info in there
