    Our Ada bindings are licensed under the LGPL.  To be specific, look at the wording of the license in plplot.adb which states (in part)

    • PLplot is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify
    • it under the terms of the GNU General Library Public License

    and similarly for other Ada bindings files.  Have you found some file there that does not have the "Library" qualifier in its license?

    On second thought, the above licensing text does have a typographical error; the "General Library" should be changed to "Library General" to be consistent with the suggested wording at http://www.gnu.org/licenses/lgpl-2.0.html and also the correct word order we use later in the licensing paragraph.

    I have just checked our source code and the incorrect word order appears a lot of places which I have now fixed as of svn revision 11680.

    Thanks for drawing our attention to this issue.
