The Harbour Project is a Free Open Source Software effort to build a multiplatform Clipper language compiler. Harbour consists of the xBase language compiler and the runtime libraries with different terminal plugins and different databases (not just DBF).

Harbour is a cross-platform compiler and is known to compile and run on MS-DOS, Windows (32 & 64), Windows CE, Pocket PC, OS/2, GNU/Linux and Mac OSX. More features »
  Why use it?   Project Status:  
  • Harbour is free software 100% compatible with Clipper compilers
• Harbour is proven to be stable, robust and efficient.
• Harbour is portable across multiple operating systems with the same code base.
• You can use it to develop either open source or commercial applications. The Blog Starter's guide on how to start a blog is a good example use-case.Learn more»
