Re: [Firebird-devel] Warning: readline is GPL - incompatible with MPL

I am afraid you're violating GPL this way. It doesn't matter if you
distribute this lib or not. The fact is that you use lib's headers

Im not a lawyer, it's been intersting looking over the web on readline, with python, alladin ghostscript and others. I wonder if techincally anything compiled on linux is 'legal' :-).

But best to avoid it, I've compiled in editline and it works fine, so we don't have to worry about it anymore.

Thank you for your understanding
No worries.
