CA-Clipper 5.2a

Computer Associates has an updated version of CA-Clipper 5.2 available for
download. The update is available only to developers who already have
CA-Clipper 5.2.

There are two versions of the CA-Clipper 5.2a update files;
US & International. You need to download the correct version or the update
process will not work!

For updating US product download ... 52AUS.EXE
For International download ......... 52AINT.EXE

These files each contain several updating files (.RTP) and a 52ADOC.TXT file.
The 52ADOC.TXT file contains a detailed description of the installation
procedure and a list of problems addressed by 5.2a.

52AUS.EXE and 52AINT.EXE are found in Library 0 of the CA-CLIPPER CompuServe
forum. ("GO CLIPPER")


Do you know if you have US or International product?

If you are unsure which version of CA-Clipper 5.2 you have installed on
your machine you should go to your OBJ directory and look for a file
called NAT_OBJ.EXE.

EXAMPLE:
C:\CLIPPER5\OBJ> DIR NAT_OBJ.EXE

If this file is present then you have the International version.
If this file is not present then you have the US version.


Do you already have 5.2a?

If you are unsure which revision of CA-Clipper 5.2 you have; the quickest
way to find out is to run the Compiler with a non-existent program file.
EXAMPLE:
C:\CLIPPER5\BIN> CLIPPER zzz

No code will be generated but version information will be displayed on the
console. If your version is 5.2 (not 5.2a) then you should download the
5.2a update.


Do you have the latest version of PATCH.EXE?

The update process requires PATCH.EXE from Pocket Soft. This program takes
the information contained in a .RTP file and generates an updated version
of a file(s).

The version of PATCH.EXE required for this update must be 1.11 or later.

If you do not have PATCH.EXE or need a newer version you may download it
from Library 0 of the CA-CLIPPER CompuServe forum.


NOTE:

o As an alternative to CompuServe; some user groups are making the patch
available to their members. Check with your local group for information
on this.
