I will (if i pluck up one's courage). At least, to have some unbeatable arguments for my boss.2008/12/13 FMDSPAM <fmdspam@xxxxxxxxx>:Yes, paragraph 3 is readable and without harm to me. I was worried about something in in paragraph 4 "Combined Works" but after your answer I have reread in §0 "Additional Definitions" the section:Ah, I see.So, in my understanding now (and please correct me if I'm wrong) the following is true: Using a header only lib, aka producing "object code incorporating material from library header files is not combining works in the the sense of the LGPLv3 and therefore not covered by paragraph 4 "Combined Works".I'm sorry, parts of sections 0 and 4 are a bit unclear to me. I'm not really able to answer this decisively. If you are concerned, it's worth asking directly the FSF or FSF-Europe, they are usually very helpful helping understand their licenses.
Very friendly, thank you all.I any case the spirit of the LGPL is to allow usage by closed-source applications, and that's how we mean it in Eigen, so regardless you won't get any trouble from us.
