Harbour is a successor of the Clipper, its modernized version.

The development of Clipper was discontinued in 1997, it was DOS-only 16-bit system and did not meet the requirements of the time. So, in 1999 an international group of developers begin to work on a modern, open source, cross-platform Clipper clone. The founder of a Harbour project is Antonio Linares.

For now Harbour is much more than a Clipper clone. It is downward compatible with Clipper, but it introduces many language extensions and gives a lot of new possibilities. It is really a cross-platform environment, it runs under Windows, Linux, Mac OS, under various Unixes, mobile platforms, there are 16-, 32- and 64-bit versions.
