programming tools

I am looking at purchasing a programming productivity tool for use in my
dbase consulting contract work.  I have looked at Clarion Professional
Developer 2.1, dBase IV 1.1 Developer, and Clipper 5.0.

Has anyone used these products (or others) or evaluated them???  I need
whatever I choose to be 100% dBaseIII+ compatible.  Am looking for the
package to build screens, build files/tables, generate code, and have a
report writer feature.  It also must have a royalty-free run-time module or
be able to generate .EXEs for DOS machines.

Will appreciate all comments from those who have experience using any of these
products  or has seen evaluations somewhere.

Thanks, and hope you have peaceful and happy holidays.
