Lua 5.0 License

Lua is the scripting language embedded in the CapLog Application and its copyright is held by Tecgraf, PUC-Rio. Lua is made available on the following open source MIT style license:

Lua source code is available from the Lua web site http://www.lua.org/ or by request to Capgo.

Capgo is appreciative of the group that have developed Lua since the early 1990's. The Lua scripting language is unique in its combination of advance features, sophistication, subtleties and capability. This is primarily due to the commitment and vision of its authors.

GPL (General Public License)

The Linux operating system and a number of utilities supplies with Capgo's products are under the open software General Public License, (GPL) version 2. The GPL requires that Capgo make available all source code covered by the license, including any modifications, to its customers at no charge other than a nominal media and handling charge. This can be obtained by request to Capgo.

Capgo supports the concept of open software and actively contributes to its development. However, certain components of Capgo's software, that do not utilize GPL software, are seen as crucial to Capgo's commercial advantage and as such remain proprietary. Capgo will release such software when competitors eventually achieve parity. In Capgo's view, this approach is commercially realistic in view of the high development costs, and believes is faithful to the the thrust of the open software philosophy.
