hi,
I am trying to create a brief finite element library in .net as open source project on the codeplex.com.
From legal view point and based on LGPL license, can i use the CSParse.net in that library? and if yes what are the restrictions?

Thanks

I'm not an expert at this, but as far as I understand:
  1. If you distribute CSparse.NET as a binary, you can choose any license for your project.
  2. If you directly include CSparse.NET code, you'll have to use the LGPL license.

Hi,
Thanks for your reply.
If i include CSparse.NET code in my project, is it possible to use GPL instead of LGPL?
