 Running clip under unix DOS emulation?

Hi

This may be a long shot!  Has anybody used clipper
for DOS running under DOS emulation on a Sun SPARC
running Solaris?

If so, I'd like to hear what emulation software you
used, how many users it supported, how well it
works etc.

Thanks

Gavin

In a past life, I was involved with a similar project.  We were running a
Clipper 5.01 application on a UNIX box (Intel-based).  I don't remember the
first flavor, but then we switched to SCO and used vp/ix(?).  It ran, but
there were limitations.  We couldn't control abnormal terminations and there
was no way to share the data files with our Novell server.  The consensus was
that it sucked.  We eventually ported the application to FlagShip and were
_much_ happier with the results.

In my present life, we use SunPC on a SPARCstation 2 (running SunOS 4.1.2) to
run apps using local data.  The apps are single user at the moment, so
everything has been ok so far.  We will be going multi-user shortly, using
files from a Novell server.  Remind me in a couple months and I may have a
better report for you.
