xBase for Linux

Does anyone know of any usable xBase compiler for Linux or Solaris.

I'm thinking along the lines of Visual FoxPro/Paradox/Visual dBase, but for Linux or Solaris.

Thanks for any responses.

Never used either myself but I've read about the Harbour project:

http://www.harbour-project.org/

and it's forked xHarbour project:

http://www.xharbour.com

I'm pretty sure both are cross platform.

I used to use CodeBase a long time ago.

Not sure if it's still around, but there was a fully Clipper-compatible product around a while back called "FlagShip". I tried their trial version, but thought the price was a little steep for me at the time.

A search for "xbase" on http://www.freshmeat.net found 18 entries, three of which were pertinent:

  FlagShip: http://www.fship.com/

  X2c: http://x2c.dtop.com/

I'm sure a search for "dbase" and "foxpro" might turn up a few more options.
