That is not what I would consider a reasonable summary of the options available under the Artistic license, which is basically aimed at not letting someone else distribute something (commercially or not) as "RPerl" that in fact has proprietary modifications.

    ysth, can you please provide your suggested wording so I can see what you mean, exactly?

      Abbreviating a license is very error prone. I would recommend you say less rather than more. What you do say makes me think you are only thinking of the GPL, not the Artistic license. You can modify and distribute RPerl without providing source code for your modifications, for instance, so long as you adhere to paragraphs 3c and 4c. You can even sell it, if aggregated as specified in paragraph 5.

        ysth,

        From the RPerl FAQ:

        "This means ... you can't re-sell RPerl without the source code ..."

        I re-read the Artistic license to make sure I understood your point. Is it truly inaccurate for me to say that "you can't re-sell RPerl without the source code"?

        Yes I've read and re-read Artistic sections 3c, 4c, and 5. I'm honestly not sure.

        Thanks!

        Perling,
        ~ Will
