Hi,

  Does anyone knows if there is any non-commercial (and under any license) C++ compiler wich allows to make :
  - shareware and freeware [both important]
  - *any* type of licensing for the compiled program (for example a personalised EULA) [optionally/non mandatory]

Thanks :)

jaime_olivares, thanks but GPL-licensed compilers do not allow to make sharewares, any other ideas?

Hi alextr2003fr,

What leads you to that conclusion?
You are allowed to make shareware programs with the GNU compiler, and with most compilers regardless of their commercial or GPL licensed.

hi Axter,
so the output program (e.g. from mingw) can be licensed under different license other than GPL in general, is that juridically legal?

Yes, it's legal.

The compiler GPL applies to the compiler, and any version of the compiler you create.
