in thread redistributing perl binaries

Hello again,

thanks for you answers cos this is really not clear in my brain and I don't want it wrong.

I already really the GPL n times (n+1 now), read the fink page but it's still confusing

Also I'm not sure about 'commercial' .

more details :

- I started with the binaries : I didn't modify any source code. (It's a kind of uncompressed tinyperl).I noticed that tinyperl was not made with AS's bianries.

- the script is a network audit tool. It will be under GPL and cost no money.

- It will be available from a service-oriented company web site

The idea is to have a stand- alone version for one USB stick

If AS's source code is available from my site am I ok ?

Have a nice day.

    ActivePerl is covered by a license agreement which states, in part,
    You may make and give away verbatim copies of this Package for personal use, or for use within your organization, provided that you duplicate all of the original copyright notices and associated disclaimers. You may not distribute copies of this Package, or copies of packages derived from this Package, to others outside your organization without specific prior written permission from ActiveState (although you are encouraged to direct them to sources from which they may obtain it for themselves).
    "Package" refers to those files, including, but not limited to, source code, binary executables, images, and scripts, which are distributed by the Copyright Holder.
    So if your package requires ActivePerl specifically, it sounds simplest to provide a link to the ActivePerl distribution on ActiveState's site where users can obtain it.


      ok this time it's clear. I cannot do that.

      Then I have to start from sources. (don't know if I'll manage this)

      Anyway thanks for all your replies

      Have a nice day
