- Subject: LGPL and a proprietary application
In reading the LGPL for pthreads-win32 I find I am confused. My application is company proprietary and one reading says that an application that "uses the library" does not itself fall under the LGPL. Another reading says that it does (mainly because it uses pthread.h and semaphore.h).
Can I link to pthreads-win32 in my application without the license requiring that I provide my source or object code to my customers?
Is there anything that my legal department would accept that would confirm this?
