    Perhaps a little "Hey! yours is good!" Or a "Good job"?

    Primarily because I'm interested. I didn't click the link because I am in immediate need of a conio library for Dev-C++, I clicked it because I had a passing interest in perusing the source code. Also, as much as I trust you, I am reluctant to run executable content posted on a web forum. The arguments for and against open-source have been advanced elsewhere. However, if you are not going to release your source code, the GPL may not be the most appropriate licence. In fact, I'd suggest that anyone on this board should take the drastic step of reading a licence prior to distributing their software under its terms.

    P.S The PDF distributed with your library looks very professional.

    A couple points:
    1) The license is OLD and there is a newer verson.
    2) You are violating your own license by not providing the source (or making it avialable)
    To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid
    anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights.

    These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you
    distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it.

    For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether
    gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that
    you have. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the
    source code
    . And you must show them these terms so they know their
    rights.
    (Bolding mine)
    3) header file should end in .h not .H
    4) The functions should be in a namespace (argueable)
    5) Doesn't seem to work (undefined reference to clrscr() and yes it is being linked int)

    thanks for coding for Dev C++, it's a great app, and becoming much better, but take the above suggestions and make it open source.

    Why not release the source scared of what people might think of your code? did you just write a wrapper for win32 console code?
    Woop?

    sorry, I'm not going to jump to dl and execute something from somebody who doesn't understand the license they released it under... I would understand missing a line in some proprietary license, but the GNU GPL?!

    I would imagine people would be much more willing to do this if you posted the source! I know you don't want to, but this is an
    open source forum. Every app everyone posts has source included so other can learn.

    @anonytmouse: Just because the source is posted, doesn't mean the exe that was compiled uses that same source! I can post a few lines of code, hey! this is myapp, try it out!, but the app really is a program that delets all of your windows dir.
