The GOLD Parser Builder is and will always be freeware.

The GOLD Parsing System was designed to aid the development of compilers, interpreters and translators. It is hoped that it will eventually become a common programming tool used by students, professors and professionals and, in general, help to advance the study of Computer Science.

The Freeware License below is based on the common zlib/libpng Open Source License Agreement.
