True. Nevertheless, learning from openly available sources, and consequently applying and implementing that knowledge in our own works, does not infringe any legal or ethical licensing models.

IMHO. :lol:

Think I have found a way round any problems explained a little on this thread https://www.purebasic.fr/english/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=72417 to save cluttering this topic.

Redrawn a lot of icons to fit.

Regards

CD

Regarding the licensing issue:

Many people agree that the code they have posted here in the forum can be used freely by anyone in any way (including commercial). Other people who posted code here, and I asked them for a license for their unlicensed code, suddenly mentioned that their code could be used freely, but not commercially. Again other people, demanding to be mentioned as the author or co-author of their code in republications of the code.
So there are different opinions of the authors and co-authors of the codes published here in the forums. An open source license provides clarity on how code can be reused, without bothering code authors with usage questions, because usage rights are unclear.

I think, it would be the best now to select a license and then ask all authors, whether they agree with licensing to this license or not. The codes whose authors don't agree with the chosen license could be rewritten with a different programming style and then placed under the chosen license, because the re-writer himself is then the author of the code. As others have mentioned, ideas you can get from other codes are not copyrighted. The ideas are protected by patents and, I think, almost nobody here will have a patent on their idea.

If someone wants to give up all rights and doesn't want to be mentioned as an author, I suggest the The Unlicense, otherwise the MIT License.

Correct me if i am wrong but I thought that publishing code on a public forum with no explicit licensing requirements placed that code firmly in the public domain after which it cannot be copyrighted.

@Sicro:
I agree with you.
Unfortunately, I can't reach Oma right now.

It's the other way around.

No license: No one may use the code in products that are later republished. It makes no difference whether the end product is source code again or binary (EXE, DLL).

With Open Source License: Anyone can use the code without asking the code authors. The license conditions must of course be respected.

in the early PC days, Public Domain meant just that, but now most people demand a license :(

I just uploaded a new version.
Barely three years have passed, and the project already has a written license! :D


Current changes (2019-04-10)
Changed
  • I've added an optional parameter to davido's nice Filter() procedure, which allows to draw only the outline of the filter.
  • minor cosmetic changes
New
  • written license
  • small program "newicon.pb", that could/should help creating your own vector icons
