    Default Question about ClanLib price

    The more I use ClanLib the more I realize how much effort has been put into developing it and how much time it took you to make it. I don't understand why you're giving it for free? Its the only c++ game framework out there, I haven't encountered any other. Its making work much easier.

    One word . . addiction.
    I program it as a hobby.

    ClanLib is full of gems, there is so much in there. Around every corner there is different surprise

    Why I do it? Its complicated, but its partly because I find the problems related to game programming interesting to solve, partly because I cannot resist coding things just to see how they end up, and partly because I needed a framework library for myself.

    Why free, open source and with a very liberal license? I think the sqlite copyright statement says it very nicely:

    The author disclaims copyright to this source code. In place of
    a legal notice, here is a blessing:

    * May you do good and not evil.
    * May you find forgiveness for yourself and forgive others.
    * May you share freely, never taking more than you give.
    In particular the 3rd part of the blessing is what results in things like Sqlite and ClanLib.

    Yes, I've noticed that documentation is not fully in sync with the actual lib .. but this is what I like about it, its full of surprises and its mysterious at the same time ... (read annoying)

    I sure will be donating if I manage to complete the game and then sell it at least 20 times.

    Keep up the good work guys!
