It depends on your particular goal. Q: In the usage of D, to write software, what restrictions are there on written code (i.e. LGPL, GPL, or user decides)? Walter said, "User decides." (digitalmars.D/244) Q: What if a person wants to develop a D compiler based on the front-end source? The DMD front-end source is available under dual (GPL and Artistic) license. Phobos, the D standard library, is also licensed as dual GPL/Artistic unless the individual file specifies otherwise. http://www.prowiki.org/wiki4d/wiki.cgi?FaqRoadmap#Licensing -- Justin (a/k/a jcc7) http://jcc_7.tripod.com/d/
