DevCPP

This is a discussion on DevCPP within the C Programming forums, part of the General Programming Boards category; Does the license of DevCPP (bloodshed) mean that programs made with it will also be free? What about GCC?...

    No. If I remember correctly, this stuff doesn't count as "derived" work. If that were so, every application developed under GNU/Linux would have to be GPLed.

    However, I think Dev-C++ shares a feature with Anjuta: it can automatically fill in the complete GPL or LGPL licence statement on top of every source file you create.

    I thought maybe they were... So I can make a common commercial app?

    If you're capable of programming one, then yes.

    Going along with CornedBee:

    What if the people who made Halo used DevC++ because they didn't want to pay for a compiler? Would that mean Halo is free?

    That example is highly unlikely, but there probably are commercial games/tools out there made with DevC++.

    Bloodshed DevC++ is free. But your programs or your code. Can be free if you want so. But also if you want so you can make it commercial.
    It's all about you. How ever you want. Licencs from DevC++ are not going on you!
    If you wanna share code for free. You can.
    If you wanna sale your code you can.
