His licence says

Quote:
In the case of the GOLD Parser Engine source code, permission is granted to anyone to alter it and redistribute it freely, subject to the following restrictions:

The origin of this software must not be misrepresented; you must not claim that you wrote the original software.
Altered source versions must be plainly marked as such, and must not be misrepresented as being the original software.
This notice may not be removed or altered from any source distribution


Which is open source by definition[^].

Use it! Add to it! Make it better! That's the whole point of sharing the code. We do as much as we can then we hope others take on the task and move it forward and years down the line it comes around and we end up downloading some awesome app that used my free code, your free code, and free code from a dozen other developers.

It's why I started CodeProject.
cheers
