Hier die Beschreibung des Autors für die "Fischer Technik DOS xBase-Clipper drivers":

Dear Fischer Technik user

In my opinion is the possibility to control the Fischer Technik interfaces and the knobloch Multiface from DOS(especially the xBase-environment Clipper5) is still a very interesting and effective option.
In contrast with the heavy, complex and slow GUI oriented windows like XP are applications under DOS extremely fast, stable, robust, straightforward and have no overhead.

For a dedicated application in digital interfacing for example controlling ft robots is DOS very efficient and relevant.

That is why I have developed a complete set of DOS (xBase) Clipper drivers for all the Fischer Technik Interfaces and the MultiFace from Knobloch.

I make all the software available so the whole Fischer Technik community can benefit from this driver collection, I consider all the clipper ft driver software developed by me as freeware. I hope it will then soon be available from ft websites.

There are drivers for the ftlpt (30520), ftcom (intelligent interface, 30402), the robopro (in II-mode) and the Multiface-interface from knobloch. All drivers directly address the IO-hardware registers of the COM-and LPT-port these addresses are implemented as parameters so all possible IO-configurations suited. All interfaces can be used simultaneously for example the Intelligent Interface at COM2 and the LPT (30520) at LPT1.

All software including source code is in the zip-file: ftclip.zzz , so rename to ftclip.zip for use. Read readme.txt first.
