Software::License::Artistic_1_0 - The Artistic License

version 0.104004

This module is part of CPAN toolchain, or is treated as such. As such, it follows the agreement of the Perl Toolchain Gang to require no newer version of perl than one released in the last ten years. This version may change by agreement of the Toolchain Gang, but for now is governed by the Lancaster Consensus of 2013 and the Lyon Amendment of 2023 (described at the linked-to document).

Although it may work on older versions of perl, no guarantee is made that the minimum required version will not be increased. The version may be increased for any reason, and there is no promise that patches will be accepted to lower the minimum required perl.

The Artistic License 1.0 has a sometimes-omitted "aggregation clause" which reads:

8. The name of the Copyright Holder may not be used to endorse or promote
products derived from this software without specific prior written

By default, this clause will be included. To disable it, include the following pair when instantiating the license:

aggregation_clause => 0

This method returns whether the aggregation clause is allowed on this instance. By default this method returns true on instances and dies on the class.
