Ada (programming language)

Ada is a structured, statically typed, imperative, and object-oriented high-level computer programming language, extended from Pascal and other languages.

Affero General Public License

The Affero General Public License (Affero GPL and informally Affero License) is either of two distinct, though historically related, free software licenses.

New!!: GNU Lesser General Public License and Affero General Public License · See more »

BSD licenses

BSD licenses are a family of permissive free software licenses, imposing minimal restrictions on the use and redistribution of covered software.

New!!: GNU Lesser General Public License and BSD licenses · See more »

C (programming language)

C (as in the letter ''c'') is a general-purpose, imperative computer programming language, supporting structured programming, lexical variable scope and recursion, while a static type system prevents many unintended operations.

C++

C++ ("see plus plus") is a general-purpose programming language.

Copyleft

Copyleft (a play on the word copyright) is the practice of offering people the right to freely distribute copies and modified versions of a work with the stipulation that the same rights be preserved in derivative works down the line.

New!!: GNU Lesser General Public License and Copyleft · See more »

Deprecation

In several fields, deprecation is the discouragement of use of some terminology, feature, design, or practice, typically because it has been superseded or is no longer considered efficient or safe, without completely removing it or prohibiting its use.

New!!: GNU Lesser General Public License and Deprecation · See more »

Derivative work

In copyright law, a derivative work is an expressive creation that includes major copyright-protected elements of an original, previously created first work (the underlying work).

New!!: GNU Lesser General Public License and Derivative work · See more »

Dynamic-link library

Dynamic-link library (or DLL) is Microsoft's implementation of the shared library concept in the Microsoft Windows and OS/2 operating systems.

New!!: GNU Lesser General Public License and Dynamic-link library · See more »

Free software

Free software or libre software is computer software distributed under terms that allow users to run the software for any purpose as well as to study, change, and distribute it and any adapted versions.

New!!: GNU Lesser General Public License and Free software · See more »

Free Software Foundation

The Free Software Foundation (FSF) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded by Richard Stallman on 4 October 1985 to support the free software movement, which promotes the universal freedom to study, distribute, create, and modify computer software, with the organization's preference for software being distributed under copyleft ("share alike") terms, such as with its own GNU General Public License.

New!!: GNU Lesser General Public License and Free Software Foundation · See more »

Free software license

A free software license is a notice that grants the recipient of a piece of software extensive rights to modify and redistribute that software.

New!!: GNU Lesser General Public License and Free software license · See more »

GNAT Modified General Public License

The GNAT Modified General Public License (short: Modified GPL, GMGPL) is a version of the GNU General Public License specifically modified for compiled units and for the generic feature found in the Ada programming language.

New!!: GNU Lesser General Public License and GNAT Modified General Public License · See more »

GNU

GNU is an operating system and an extensive collection of computer software.

New!!: GNU Lesser General Public License and GNU · See more »

GNU Free Documentation License

The GNU Free Documentation License (GNU FDL or simply GFDL) is a copyleft license for free documentation, designed by the Free Software Foundation (FSF) for the GNU Project.

New!!: GNU Lesser General Public License and GNU Free Documentation License · See more »

GNU General Public License

The GNU General Public License (GNU GPL or GPL) is a widely used free software license, which guarantees end users the freedom to run, study, share and modify the software.

New!!: GNU Lesser General Public License and GNU General Public License · See more »

GPL linking exception

A GPL linking exception modifies the GNU General Public License (GPL) in a way that enables software projects which provide library code to be "linked to" the programs that use them, without applying the full terms of the GPL to the using program.

New!!: GNU Lesser General Public License and GPL linking exception · See more »

Header-only

In the context of the C or C++ programming languages, a library is called header-only if the full definitions of all macros, functions and classes comprising the library are visible to the compiler in a header file form.

New!!: GNU Lesser General Public License and Header-only · See more »

Inheritance (object-oriented programming)

In object-oriented programming, inheritance is the mechanism of basing an object or class upon another object (prototypal inheritance) or class (class-based inheritance), retaining the same implementation.

New!!: GNU Lesser General Public License and Inheritance (object-oriented programming) · See more »

Library (computing)

In computer science, a library is a collection of non-volatile resources used by computer programs, often for software development.

New!!: GNU Lesser General Public License and Library (computing) · See more »

Lisp (programming language)

Lisp (historically, LISP) is a family of computer programming languages with a long history and a distinctive, fully parenthesized prefix notation.

New!!: GNU Lesser General Public License and Lisp (programming language) · See more »

MIT License

The MIT License is a permissive free software license originating at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

New!!: GNU Lesser General Public License and MIT License · See more »

Permissive software licence

A permissive software license, sometimes also called BSD-like or BSD-style license, is a free software software license with minimal requirements about how the software can be redistributed.

New!!: GNU Lesser General Public License and Permissive software licence · See more »

Proprietary software

Proprietary software is non-free computer software for which the software's publisher or another person retains intellectual property rights—usually copyright of the source code, but sometimes patent rights.

New!!: GNU Lesser General Public License and Proprietary software · See more »

Reverse engineering

Reverse engineering, also called back engineering, is the process by which a man-made object is deconstructed to reveal its designs, architecture, or to extract knowledge from the object; similar to scientific research, the only difference being that scientific research is about a natural phenomenon.

New!!: GNU Lesser General Public License and Reverse engineering · See more »

Software relicensing

Software relicensing is applied in open-source software development when software licenses of software modules are incompatible and are required to be compatible for a greater combined work.

New!!: GNU Lesser General Public License and Software relicensing · See more »

Static library

In computer science, a static library or statically-linked library is a set of routines, external functions and variables which are resolved in a caller at compile-time and copied into a target application by a compiler, linker, or binder, producing an object file and a stand-alone executable.

New!!: GNU Lesser General Public License and Static library · See more »

Vorbis

Vorbis is a free and open-source software project headed by the Xiph.Org Foundation.
