Porting DOS Applications to Linux
A commercial clone of Borland's BGI library is also available for Linux. If your program uses BGI graphics, this may be an attractive option. A shareware version (US$15 registration) should be available at sunsite.unc.edu in the file /pub/Linux/apps/graphics/bgi_library.tar.gz by the time you read this.
The sunsite.unc.edu ftp site also carries a wide variety of database tools, from simple libraries for handling reading/writing PC-style XBase files to SQL systems.
A Commercial package called FlagShip for porting clipper database programs directly to Linux is available. A demo version is available from ftp://ftp.wgs.com/pub2/wgs/Filelist
