in reply to Perl 5 Optimizing Compiler, Part 10: Kickstarter & Performance Benchmarks

Care to comment on this, from the kickstarter? "RPerl is 100% free-of-charge for all non-commercial use."

Does anyone really want to have to pay to use perl? There's no way I'd donate to something that's not going to be Free.

    frew,

    Thanks for your question, it's been asked before and is now clarified in the FAQ:

    Q: How much does RPerl cost?

    A: RPerl is 100% free-of-charge for all non-commercial use as licensed under the same terms as Perl 5.18.0. This means you can use RPerl at home or at work, but you can't re-sell RPerl without the source code and you can't change the copyright terms.

    Does that answer your question?

    Thanks!

    Perling,
    ~ Will

      Thatís cool, because Perl is happily being used commercially too. So if itís ďunder the same terms as Perl 5.18.0Ē, I do quite believe you shouldnít be emphasising that itís free for non-commercial use. Or itís not under the exact same terms.

      Decide.

        Ralesk, I updated the FAQ again, how does it look now?
