Description

The Harbour project

************************************************************************

* This file contains information on obtaining, installing, and using

* Harbour. Please read it *completely* before asking for help.

************************************************************************

Harbour is a free implementation of an xBase language compiler. It is designed to be source code compatible with the CA-Cl*pper(r) compiler. That means that if you’ve got some code that would compile using CA-Cl*pper(r) then it should compile under Harbour. The Harbour-Project web page is:

http://harbour-project.org/

Status and other information is always available from the web site. There is a Harbour mailing list. Harbour is still at a very early stage of development, so the mailing list is very much a Developers only list, although every body is welcome to join in the discussions.

We would like you to join the Harbour development team. If you are interested you may suscribe to our mailing list and start contributing to this free public project.

Please feel free to report all questions, ideas, suggestions, fixes, code, etc. you may need and want. With the help of all of you, the Harbour compiler and runtime libraries will become a reality very soon.

What this distribution contains

==========================

This distribution is a Source code only distribution. It does not contain any executable files. Executable versions of Harbour are available from the web site. Executable versions of Harbour DO NOT create runable programs. Harbour at the moment produces C output code, which must be compiled with the Harbour Virtual Machine and the support libraries in order to create a functioning program. Please test running Harbour against your CA-Cl*pper source code and report any problems that might occur.

Very important: The preprocessor functionality is now working.

Installation

————

1. Unzip with Harbour zip file using pkunzip or equivalent.

E.G. pkunzip -d build72.zip

This will create Harbour/ directory and all the relevant sub directories.

2. Compile Harbour using your C compiler. Make files for different platforms are included in the <WHERE ARE THEY?> directory.
