Hi list, I'm investigating the possibility to make pdfopen (aka pdfdde)
a part of the MiKTeX distribution. pdfopen (at least the Windows
version) is (C) Adobe. The "Acrobat(r) Plug-ins software development
kit license" applies here. I tried to get more info about this license.
Without success. It seems that you have to become an ASN developer
(i.e., pay $195) before you can download the pdfdde sources. To make it
short: am I allowed to
- fetch the pdfdde sources (from the TL source depot)
- compile and distribute pdfdde.exe?
The README in TeX/texk/contrib doesn't tell.
