( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I have a simple rule of thumb. If the license is restrictive of my work, then I do not use the product. If you have any doubts about why, just think in terms of IP. People get burned all the time because party A (who owns the license) decides to lay claims to party B's work (who merely bought a copy, or signed a contract). At which point, B looses automatically. I realize that most work (today) will never have that done, but who wants to be the victim of robber barons?

There is to much out there in the world of open source to say that one is locked into a solution like that from the start. The decision may unfortunately not be yours at work, but at least it can be yours at home.

btw.... I do not use ActiveState products or M$ products to develop. I use open source only.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
