    This is a cut and paste from a recent message at kvcd.net.
    I'm not allowed to post their download links without permission, so I'll just post the message link.

    Cheers!

    Hello everyone,

    It's my pleasure to announce the availability of CQMatic and CalcuMatic as Open Source software
    As I don't have time (at this moment) to maintain and expand the programs, I decided to release them to the world so anyone may enhance and expand them.
    You need "PureBasic" version 3.x to compile. Visit http://www.purebasic.com for more information.
    The license model I chose, is the new and standard "3-clause" BSD style: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BSD_license
    This basically permits it's use in any commercial or private programs, and the only requirements is that the copyright notice is maintained on the sources that are released, and any binary release must also attach the notice to any documentation and/or other materials provided with the distribution.
    You can read the license text on the program sources.
    IP (Intelectual Property) code is not required to be released by any developer who would like to modify the sources and create new versions, unlike the GPL !!*viral*!! effect, which forces every programmer to release every drop of code they create.
    So, here you have it

    Have fun, and excuse some of the sloppy code
    Remember that these programs were basically "cooked" overnight, so functionality was selected before code dressing, so feel free to "Dress-it-up" if you like

    unfortunately the message link is behind the forum username / password prompt.

    I wouldn't mind taking a look at the source, but I won't join just for that.
    If in doubt, Google it.

    Hi Jim,
    I'm sorry about that.
    The forum is closed to members only but the official webpage is not.
    Try this one http://www.kvcd.net/portal/index.php.
    Now one of the latest (if not the latest) news should be CQM and CM going open source.
    There you will find a copy o my post above (originally written by Karl) and links to the source files .

    @all
    Please take good notice of the license in use.

    Cheers
