Custom Compiler and Libc Licensing
Posted on 2003-02-26
I am currently working on a compiler/linker for Linux and I have a question related to the licensing of Linux's libc. If I release a compiler that uses libc, and someone compiles a product with it, is their product also subject to the libc licensing (since part of the compiled code may include compiled code from libc as well)?
Basically, I want people to be able to use my compiler to produce their products without worrying about the restrictions of the GNU Library General Public License. Is this possible?
