It happens (to me) to be as simple as this: If the parsed program is susbtituted by a clone will the parsing program continue working? If the answer is yes, since it is absurd that the parsing program is a derivative work of all possible clones at the same time, then clearly it is not a derivative work. If the answer is no, then clearly the parsing program depends on the parsed one 'in an intimate way'. Can a clone or sucessor of nmap be used with gnetworktester? Regards Noel er Envite
