Actually, no.  Clipper (a very fine language I used for many years) has
a Free Software implementation called Harbour.  It's funny that I just
mentioned this on another thread about FoxPro, even through I haven't
thought about it for a year or more.  See:

I have not read c.l.clipper recently. But when I last left it a fair
percentage of discussion was about Harbour, not only about Computer
Associates' proprietary product.  Of course, there are also many free
and proprietary libraries, applications, and so on that get discussed
over there.

Yours, Lulu...
