1. Definition of Source Code.
Source Code, where used in this document, means any collection of code, with or without comments, written using a human-readable programming language, usually as plain text. The source code of a program is specially designed to facilitate the work of computer programmers, who specify the actions to be performed by a computer mostly by writing source code. The source code is often transformed by an assembler or compiler into binary machine code that can be executed by the computer. The machine code might then be stored for execution at a later time. Alternatively, source code may be interpreted and thus immediately executed.
Unless otherwise noted, the Printer Driver Software, Support and Maintenance Service, and Documentation are referred to collectively herein as “Printer Driver Software Product(s)”. All undefined names of Printer Driver Software Products have the meanings given to them in the Documentation.
Seagull Scientific grants you a non-exclusive license to use the accompanying Printer Driver Software Product(s), subject to the following provisions.
