 Clipper SUMMER vs. Clipper WINTER

Could someone please tell me the difference between Nantucket's
Clipper SUMMER vs. Clipper WINTER ? Also can either of the
packages be upgraded to a current version ?

Thanks in Advance,
Tim Willoughby

And so spake Tim Willoughby Perpk:

In the beginning... Clipper releases were named for when they came out.  I
think there was a Winter '85 and an Autumn '86, but I may have the years
wrong.  Summer '87 was the last of those, then version 5 came out.  The ZAC
catalog (800-CLIPPER) says that you can upgrade from S87, but you'll have to
ask about the others.

Tim -

The only Windter version of Clipper I am familiar with is _anceint_!  And
I don't think that CA is upgrading from Summer '87 anymore either,
although I could be wrong.  Just call 1-800-CALL-CAI and ask if your
version is eligible for an upgrade.  Even so, it won't be cheap.

P.S. Perhaps someone who has moved completely to VO (or something else,
for that matter) would be willing to sell you their copy of 5.2 cheaper
than you can upgrade it.  It wouldn't hurt to ask.

I have a source in the U.S. to purchase Clipper 5.2 for $99.00.
If you are interested I will get the name and number and post it tomorrow.
I can't remember the name of the company at the moment but I recieved their
current catalogue in the mail yesterday.

Hope this helps:
        Clipper Winter 85
        Clipper Autumn 86
        Clipper Summer 87
Each version improved on the last.  There has been no upgrade path
that I am aware of for a while now (but I could be wrong).  You might
want to try Surplus Software for Clipper 5.0.

There were two.

        Winter 84
        Winter 85.

Clipper Winter 84 was the original release and was so buggy that
......  

Winter 85 was a good dbase III+ compiler with a few goodies added on.
