This is a dramatic change from other Perl distributions and has influenced other distributions (such as its main competitors, the open source ActivePerl distribution freely available but published by ActiveState) to provide such development tools in their own distribution. Some licenses for libraries that are statically compiled into Perl modules are also mentioned below: in most cases, the modules indicate that they are identical to the Perl interpreter, but you can check the modules you use. This copyright does not prohibit the distribution of versions of Perl containing this extension under the terms of the GNU or Artistic licenses. More generally – technically, each module can be licensed separately. There is no need to release Perl code (including modules) under any type of FLOSS license. There are many Perl modules pre-installed in the Strawberry Perl distribution. All are under an OSI-compatible open source license. To get license information about these modules, use the command: perldoc This is an aggregate of several different projects under an OSI-compatible or public domain-enabled open source license. There are many external libraries (binaries + development files) contained in the Strawberry Perl distribution.

You can find license and source code information about these libraries in the corresponding subdirectory. Note, however, that the ActiveState Community Edition is not the same license as the CPAN modules. CPAN modules are “Mostly GNU”. But ActiveState CE has a few additional conditions. In addition, any object code associated with Perl does not automatically fall under GPL conditions, provided that this object code only adds subroutine and variable definitions and does not prevent the resulting interpreter from running a default perl script. . . .
