Copyright Notes

As TIGCC is a complex team project, various parts of it have been made by different authors:

ld-tigcc Copyright (C) 2002-2006 Sebastian Reichelt and Kevin Kofler, licensed under the GPL
Library & Documentation Copyright (C) 2000-2006 Zeljko Juric and contributors, licensed under the GPL with libgcc exception
IDE Copyright (C) 2000-2006 Sebastian Reichelt and contributors, licensed under the GPL

Some parts of the TIGCC package (cpp, gcc, as, ld, ar, objcopy) are modified parts from the GNU Compiler Collection and GNU BinUtils packages. These parts are free software; you can redistribute them and/or modify them under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by the Free Software Foundation; either version 2 of the License, or (at your option) any later version.

Parameter passing by register Copyright (C) 1998-2003 Fred Fish from Geek Gadgets; converted to GCC 3.0 and higher by Kevin Kofler.

Thomas Nussbaumer holds the copyright for the TIGCC Tools Suite, from which the compression feature was taken. It is licensed under the LGPL.

a68k (also included in the package) is a freeware assembler by Charlie Gibbs (it is a somewhat modified Amiga version).

Special copyright notes about the documentation and the library:

All information presented in the documentation are strictly mine, not by Texas Instruments (except information about GNU products, which are based on the original GNU manuals). All of TIOS-specific information in this document are result of a hours of work with the debugger. But I need to give credits to Gareth James: his informational files, although extremely briefly, help me a lot to understand some particular TIOS secrets.

The TIGCC library and documentation is absolutely free for any distribution if you don't change anything in this package. But, to give credit to my hard work, please do the following:

I simply want that this documentation to become known to as many C and assembly programmers as possible.

Note that this is Zeljko's original license for the library. Zeljko has since approved its release under the GPL with the libgcc exception (allowing you to freely link the code with both GPLed and non-GPLed programs without restrictions). Still, we would appreciate being credited for our work.
