hi
Lazarus is a cross-platform visual integrated development environment (IDE) for rapid application development (RAD) using the Free Pascal compiler, which supports dialects of
Object Pascal
, to varying degrees. Software developers use Lazarus to create native-code console and graphical user interface (GUI) applications for the desktop, and
also for mobile devices, web applications,
web services
, visual components and function libraries (.so, .dll, etc., for use by other programs). The Free Pascal compiler supports a number of different platforms,
such as Mac, Linux and Windows.

but Has problems in the license( license violation)

What is the problem with the license? The Lazarus compiler is under the terms of the GNU GPL and the Lazarus Component Library is under the GNU LGPL. Lazarus actually is in Trisquel's repository. For instance, you can install it from "Add/Remove Applications".

If you are talking about the license of the programs compiled with Lazarus, the GNU GPL and LGPL do not impose anything on them. I just hope you will choose a free software license if you distribute them.

fromWikipedia, the free encyclopedia
"""

Lazarus is
free software
. Different portions are distributed under different
free software licenses
, including
GPL,
LGPL,
MPL
, and a modified version of LGPL.
[3]

Specifically, the LCL, which is statically built into the produced executables, is licensed under a modified version of the LGPL, granting extra permissions
to allow it to be statically built into the produced software, including
proprietary
ones.

Note that installing a
design-time
package is equivalent to linking to the IDE. Thus, distributing the Lazarus IDE with a GPL-incompatible design-time package (e.g. the
JEDI
packages, which are licensed under the
Mozilla Public License
) pre-installed would cause a license violation. This does not prohibit proprietary packages from being developed with Lazarus, though.

LCL is just LGPL + extra permission to statically link with proprietary software. I don't see how that's nonfree.

I think it's free software with a "permissive touch".
The fact that a piece of software is permissive might be a problem but it can't be solved by the users.
Even if they make a new program out of it and license it under the gpl, the old version is still out there and can be used by developers to make a proprietary program.
But we can use this program without any hesitation since it's free as in freedom.

How many times do we have to tell you that there seems to be *no* problem with the license.
If you have further information please go ahead and explain it to us.

Just FYI (for future reference--also to forum/list readers), the FSF
Licensing & Compliance Team is probably the best contact for checking if
a program is free or not and other licensing questions.

You can email them at name at domain and this is their webpage:
