PBMake 2.16 for Clipper, Xbase++, C and ASM

Getting Started:

Put it in your Path.
Building your first Blank Template.


Put it in your Path.

First, you must place PBMAKE.EXE, PBINIT.EXE and PBERRLIN.EXE in a directory in your path. Your \CLIPPER5\BIN directory would be fine.

Building your first Blank Template.

Go to a directory where you wish to institute a make process. At the DOS prompt, type: PBINIT <makefilename> where <makefilename> is the intended name of the make script. It makes sense to name it the same as the target/.EXE file it will create, so it's easy to remember. If you use an extension on <makefilename>, it will be removed, and changed to .MAK PBINIT will never overwrite an existing template. The first time you ran PBINIT <makefilename> it also creates a file named MAKE.BAT and a file named MK.BAT. Running PBInit will allow you to create both a .MAK file and a .LNK file if you don't already have one. Just select the appropriate buttons, and PBInit will build full fledged link and make scripts for you. You can customize the link scripts by modifying the PBINIT.INI file. See the REFERENCE section of this Norton Guide, and select Initializer Tool section to get a comprehensive documentation of how the new 2.0x version has improved this ability.
