Linking Clipper with C

Linking Clipper with C

  Has anyone successfully and reliably extended Clipper 5.0 using
Turbo C compiled object modules or should the 'official' specification
of Microsoft C be considered the only working basis ?

I've done it - what I was doing it FOR was nothing fancy, and
did NO TC lib calls. But it does work. Once youre into the lib calls.
just be sure neither your routine, nor any of the LIB routines you use,
touch the FP math routines. (Actually have done it with lib routines, come
to think of it - have a couple of TC modules in my old library that converted
to 5.0 ... they seem to still be working w/o problems)


1. !Help needed linking to Clipper-indexed DBase tables

I'm trying to link a D3 app to a set of large DBase tables which make use
of Clipper indices.  

However whichever driver I use to access the tables (either the BDE
standard (DBASE) driver or the ODBC Microsoft dBase Driver), the results
are sooo sloooooow that ordinary frequent use is totally unfeasible.

Does anyone know of a DBase driver that can handle Clipper indices?
