Hi,

I Would like some information about D compiler about license.
Could I use D compiler for a commercial product.
Let's say I would like to create a GUI editor based on D programming,
do I have the right to do it?

Yes you can. You just can't redistribute the dmd compiler. At least that's what I think.

You can, of course, compile a D program with the compiler.  In this 
case, the limitations on your rights would come only from the libraries 
you use.

You can also write a program which outputs D code.  Just like lex/yacc 
and similar.  Since you are creating new work when you do this, no 
current copyright should matter.  Software patents, however, might.

Please keep in mind that I am not a lawyer, nor am I able to give legal 
advice.  All of the above statements are based solely on my personal, 
unlearned opinion.

If you wish to receive answers to legal questions, you should ask a 
properly licensed lawyer.

I would say yes but I know very little about legal issues. Sorry, It has nothing to do with your question but I was wondering if you were the fifth France-based D programmer. The frenchies ( as far as I rememeber ): - one nearby Lyon - one in Ardèche, German I think. - an other one whose location is unknown. - I, currently in Douai, but I'll be back in Caen this summer.

I may contribute in a few months.
