Using GPL components in a supercard standalone

Postby johnjohnston1 » Wed Jun 01, 2011 11:20 am

Hi Folks,
My head is hurting. I have made a simple app that is the front-end to a gpl licensed command-line application.

You seem to be able, as I understand it use gpl software to make another product as long as the source you create is licensed under the GPL too.
How does this affect SC apps as we can't, obviously, distribute the source to the SC engine?

cheers

Answering my own question. I mailed someone whose command line app I was interested in using.

It sounds to me like you are EXECUTING the application, rather than incorporating its code, and you don't need my permission for that. If you are incorporating the code directly into your project -- i.e., compiling parts of of as a library, or something like it....

Which clears this up for me.

cheers
