Anyone have experience / knowledge on this? The FLTK license is here:


Actually, after looking over that my concern above isn't valid (right? 
anyone, anyone <g>). Reason: The RAD tool would just be writing out code 
that imported the FLTK modules and then statically link the app. to the 
FLTK lib. The RAD tool itself would not be using modified FLTK code so 
the tool source code would not need to be GPL'd (but of course FLTK 
itself would still be distributed w/ the tool). Cool.
