I’m new to Clarion and working on a task moving an existing project into Git. Working in Clarion 10.
I have used Clarion’s internal tooling as well as Rick Martin’s famous UPVC tool to export APP files to text (via Application => Export Application To Text) and back again. However, upon re-importing the .APV files into Clarion, compilation breaks due to a myriad of errors. Tracing these errors led to the discovery that re-imported procedures were missing their parameter signatures.
The same symptoms occur when using the Upper Park tool via Upper Park VC => Save App to Version Control, as well as by right clicking on Solution Items in the Solution Explorer and selecting VC Getting Started => Test Export and re-Import APP Files.
Overall the question is, how can I modify my export/import process in order to preserve the solution state upon re-importing all APPs into Clarion?
Edit: discovered this webinar http://clarionlive.wikispaces.com/ClarionLiveOpenWebinars including a note by John that he was writing a .TXA parser to solve this issue. If anyone knows anything about the parser, if it still exists (from back in 2016), or how it can be re-written (what lines need to be removed/changed in the .TXA files) then that would be a massive help. Cheers!
