This file lists Third Party
Products available to work with FlagShip. There are hundreds of products
written in, and for Clipper or other xBase dialects. Any of these
products are pretty easy to adapt to FlagShip on Unix. We expect that
shortly a flood of these will become available. We know of many
that are working on FlagShip versions, but are not yet ready to announce
If you have particular products
that you want available, please call the manufacturers of the Clipper
versions and tell them that you want it. The delay in many cases is
that these manufacturers do not beleive that a big enough market exists
in Unix to be worth their time... or make it a priority, however enough
calls will convince them otherwise. Please also write us a message
so that we can bring pressure to bear with the numbers of requests
For you programmers capable
of creating products: This is an opportunity to create a product
that is the eqivalent of a good seller in the Clipper world, and dominate
the Unix market for this product before others do.
If you have
a product, and wish for it to be listed here, please let us know,
and submit a short description of approx. 3-5 lines to be posted here,
in addition to a product info containing the name, address, phone
number & email address of the author and web page if available.
Attach source files in .tgz (.tar.gz) format when your product is
OpenSource or free-of-charge. For commercial products, only the short
& product descriptions are sufficient. Send it via e-mail to
Of course, you will benefit too by an advanced tech support.
