Title: Using C++ libraries for commercial purposes.
Post by: Nemev on January 09, 2020, 08:04:36 pm
Hi
I know Code::Blocks is free IDE and everyone Can use it for all purposes. But Can I use libraries (for example iostream etc.) for commercial purposes without giving source code of software?
Best Regards.

Hi. I'm using GNU GCC Compiler. Is licensed under GNU GPL. I can compile my code for commercial purposes without licensing under GNU GPL. I have  got a question. If I add #include (name of the library) can I don't license under GNU GPL? There libraries is licensed under GNU GPL from FSF.
