[OT?] GCC License

Discussion in 'C Programming' started by Rafal 'Raf256' Maj, Jul 1, 2003.

  1. Hello,
    This question is mostly about C Compilers, not C itself,
    I couldnt find a better news group for this question (apart from

    I have written a small application using GCC (+MinGW), and now I want to
    sell license for using it (for commercial purposes) to other firm.
    Is this 100% legal? Do I have to put inside program license information
    about using this compiler in this program? Have I to put this information
    somewhere inside program (that users will see it), etc?

  2. You have posted your question to at least one better place than here,
    comp.os.msdos.djgpp. The gnu.* newsgroups are a good choice, as are the
    cygwin and MinGW mailing lists. comp.lang.c is a very poor choice. Your
    question has nothing to do with C, and that's all we do here.

    Programs you write with GNU CC are not covered under the GPL explicitly.

    So yes, you can sell the application.
