Re: question concerning distribution of GCC parts


<A program is a C compiler that relies on cpp.exe - that is, part
of GCC - as a preprocessor. The compiler itself is GPL'ed. Is
it legal to distribute only the preprocessor executable together
ith the compiler, and what are the terms if it's possible? Else,
are there other ways to make it so that users won't have to download
the entire GCC package?

Just read the GPL requirements here. There is no requirement to distribute
sources with a program. That is just one of the options for making the
sources available.
