 HELP: FlagShip and Accounting For Clipper

Two (?) years ago, we bought Accounting For Clipper and it has served us
very well compiled by Clipper 5.01a.  Now, as we are moving our
opertations to Unix, we are trying to port AFC using FlagShip.  I am
getting some strange errors in FlagShip that I didn't get in Clipper.
Below are a couple of samples.  To me they look like incompatibilities
with CA-Clipper.  Could someone give me some pointers regarding porting
AFC with FlagShip?  Also, what about the NanFor.LIB functions?

common.prg: Error in line 1613, object variable not assignable.
oGet:Changed :=.T.

eoyuncls.prg: Error in line 68, expression.
.......................v
gl->( DBSEEK( cFullYr ), .T.  )

This is not assignable, Clipper ignores it, FlagShip catches the
error, but in true compiler fashion reports it as a subsequent issue
as seen below.  So yes, it is an incompatibility where FlagShip actually
catches an error that Clipper does not.  There are lots of these sorts
of things..... like a single IF followed by a double ENDIF  Maybe we
should promote FlagShip as a Syntax Checker for Clipper....
