ok I have a few question about gcc and stuff... as far as licence is consered... ok I''m working on writing a gamedev library thats multi-platform... I know under gpl that I have to provided source and that they can do anything they want with the prog/srouce... I would just put it under the gpl but... I''m a starving programmer... =) I planning on releasing the source and they can do anything they want with it... under a few conditions... basicaly if there going to make money off of it then I''d like to see some money back... so if the project is freeware then the library and source is free to use... but if its used comeraly then I''d like so see some money back from it(negotiable amount)... anyways I read somewhere or someone told me awhile back that if I want to use gcc or djgpp then I have to release my programs under the gpl... is this true?

No, you can write whatever you want and use and style licence you want. Gcc is covered under the gpl, but code produced from it''s use is NOT COVERED.

I would recommend using some sort of open-source/community licence even if you plan on trying to make money off of it, as it helps all involved to be able to see the source code. Just make sure that whatever licence you develop gives you exclusive rights for commercial use.

well thats what I was planning on =)
I love opensource program I''ve gained a lot from them... in fact about 5min before I made the last post I was reading through the quake source... learned a few new tricks =... just about everything I do I put up on my webpage so others can have a look at it and learn from me code... if this was a game I was writing I wouldn''t give it a second thought... I''d gpl the code and copyright the gfx and such(well if its a commercial game =) but heh well all the library is is srouce so... basicaly the compiled libs and the source will be free to use how ever you see fit... at no charge just as long as there isn''t proffet to be made from it.. eather from useing the source in your own lib and sell the library or if you write a program that uses my library... then I want to see at least a little bit back...

anyways thanx for the info
laterz
