License of Scripts

Postby hkopp » 19 May 2011, 19:38

i have written a script for polymake, callable via polymake --script <scriptfile>

Now I am unsure, if I have to put my script under the GPL, since polymake is GPL-licensed. Is my script a derived work?
I am no attorney, so I would be very grateful for help.

Best regards

Neither are we. I'd simply say scripts are not derived work - they are just using polymake core functions. C++ clients would be certainly infected by the license.
