Right now there is no way to access the parse tree of the gcc from anywhere.

This is for my projects GCC patch and output.

The introspector itself could even stay under the GPL, but where would it get the semantically annotated parse trees from the gcc from?

There is no program database, no full symantic parser for emacs.

This would allow emacs and vim and other tools like DIA and VCG to access this data safely. That is what is is meant to do. A meta-data exchange.

It is not a general license for end user software, it is a license for program meta data. No one has any real tools for this right now in the c/c++ world. The perl::b modules are the only thing close, but there is no repository and browser for the output.

Please dont just jump to conclusions, I am not just proposing another license to propose another license. You cannot use any of the MSDN data for generation of free software tools. You cannot use the shared source from microsoft in a GPL program.<> This license is limited to GPLed software for the first phase and there is enough out there that would benefit from this program.

If the implications of the license are understood we can always expand it.

Please understand the limited scope of my license before shooting me!

      It has been suggested to rename Perl 6 in order to boost its marketing potential. Which name would you prefer?
