PowerBASIC License Agreement


This software is protected by United States copyright law and international treaties. It is licensed for use by one specific person, whose name will be registered with PowerBASIC, Inc., on one computer at a time.  It may be moved from one computer to another as long as there is no possibility of it being used on more than one computer at the same time. If this software is used on a network, one licensed copy of the software is required for each person who uses the software. If the licensed product is a compiler, you may distribute the programs you create royalty free. You may not distribute the licensed compiler. If the licensed product includes one or more runtime modules, you may reproduce and distribute them royalty free, provided they are distributed only in conjunction with, and as part of your software program, and provided that they bear your copyright notice or the copyright notice which appears on the PowerBASIC, Inc. disk label. The runtime modules are those files that are required to execute your software program, and which are specifically designated as "runtime modules" in the accompanying PowerBASIC, Inc. documentation. Your use of any of the demonstration or sample programs provided with this product are governed by the notices and restrictions of the respective author or copyright holder.  Except as stated above, you may not resell, transfer ownership, barter, donate, rent, lease, lend, or share the licensed software to/with another person or entity.  By written request to PowerBASIC, Inc., you may specify a change of licensed user if the replacement user is your employee or family member.


You may use the licensed software to create and maintain any form of target computer program for your own use.  However, if you publish any target computer program, freeware or commercial, which is a tool for programmers (programming language, compiler, interpreter, programmer's library, etc.), you may not export a wrapper for any PowerBASIC command which allows that command to be used in other programming languages.  For example, you may write and publish your own target program to sort data in an array.  But you may not publish a target program which exports the PowerBASIC ARRAY SORT Command for use with a programming language other than PowerBASIC.
